60's Fish-eye Decor

The 1960's saw Acme focusing more on the look and design of their interiors. Previous decor packages consisted mostly of simple lettering above the departments. There is also very little photographic evidence to document the evolution of Acme's interiors prior to the 60's. Even for this package, we have only two pictures that give us a look inside. The photo above if from the Clayton store. As you can see, the figh-eye sign that we're all very used to seeing on the outside of the stores was also used on the inside. Below if a photo from the original Lincroft store. If you look closely, you can see the fish-eye signs along the back wall...
