KIRKUS REVIEW

The quiet reminiscences of a jeweler whose life spanned the changes in the upstate New York community from small town to bustling city, are a ""journey in contentment"" through city streets, instead of country lanes. He learns to know the inner meanings behind the show windows, the characters that made Wellston a town. He philosophizes over the intrusion of big business from outside -- on the changes in ways of thinking -- on installment buying and its results -- on the breakdown in community manners -- he takes business apart to see what makes it tick. A unique book.
