Wasp sensibilities[edit]

The article has:

The store culturally was known for its WASP sensibilities,[dubious ][neutrality is disputed]

This can probably be sourced. For example, "the store has long had a reputation for gentility and conservatism".[1] "Altman's program, as it starts its second century, is to retain its image as a carriage-trade store, safely conservative,"[2]

I just added your suggestion --Ted-m (talk) 23:58, 20 February 2009 (UTC)
My idea was that someone who wanted to do more careful research could find a more explicit statement of Altman's waspiness. The Times is beating around the bush here. —Dominus (talk) 06:47, 21 February 2009 (UTC)

Has a logo and a picture[edit]

should the template requesting the photo and logo be removed? I am not sure if the best way to do this is to just remove it, or to place another tag that says the article has those things already?Secretsources (talk) 12:42, 19 January 2015 (UTC)
