Lord & Taylor was the first of the city's department stores to debut their holiday windows. Last night, scenes of vintage New York City and shoppers of decades past inside the department store were unveiled to crowds gathered outside Fifth Avenue. Depicted in this year's windows are dancing couples, mothers with their children, romantic gift exchanges, and more than one Santa Claus. 17 stunning close-ups of the display are all after the jump.
