Storyline

They said in the big department store that "nothing could phase Nora Grady." She was a saleslady, hard-working, but with plenty of heart, and, her enemies whispered, a bit of a temper. She didn't love her daily grind, but the father and mother and the little sister needed the money, so she kept at it. Love had never entered her life, she was too busy, but they say that pity is akin to love, and that was bow her funny little romance started. A gawky country boy applied for work, and he was so helpless that Nora felt sorry for him, guided him to the proper department and aided materially in landing him in the wrapping room. The ruralite was very grateful. He thanked Nora and she invited him to dinner. She advised him how he could make his work count, and he followed her suggestions as best he could, but he never was nor would he ever be the "capable hand" that the girl was.

A promenade of pretty women in pretty gowns
12 November 2016 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

The opening scenes of this picture show something of fife in a big department store. Later scenes carry the action into the home life of two of the salesladies, and a fresh love story is introduced. This brings forward, in a very natural way. A promenade of pretty women in pretty gowns, new spring styles, morning gowns, afternoon gowns and evening gowns. This will be interesting to everyone, but will be especially so to the ladies. The story is entirely natural and convincing. It is also very pleasingly acted by Miss M. Snow in the leading role with Miss Flo LaBadie, Mr. Russel and a very good player whose name we don't know. The photography is good. - The Moving Picture World, May 18, 1912
