Back in its hay day, Higbee's Department Store in downtown Cleveland was known for its incredible window displays.

Encased behind these two story window fronts, passerbys could see the latest fashions, baubles, and at Christmas time, the most enchanting holiday themes.

Now that Higbee's is morphing into a casino, they're removing the old window panes, and boarding up the empty holes. Not sure what's going to appear on the other side once the plywood's removed. 

I can only hope it's as beautiful and mesmerizing as it was in its glory days.
