For most of us who grew up in the Dayton, Ohio area, going downtown to Rike's department store during the holidays was a must do! Their windows were just such fun! I can still remember standing in the bitter cold, nose pressed to the icy glass, drinking in every single detail each scene offered. To us, the children of the 50s and 60s, they were an integral part of our Christmas experience. When Rike's was imploded to make way for the Schuster Center for the Performing Arts, these scenes were salvaged and reconditioned. What a treat for the children of today and for those of of a *certain* age who still remember childhood...and have kept their child like enthusiasm locked securely in their heart!
