This 47-story office building was the tallest building in the world upon completion in 1908. Designed by Earnest Flagg, it’s a wonderful example of the early Beaux-Arts architectural style, located in Lower Manhattan, New York City. About Department 56: Over thirty years ago, Department 56 began as part of Bachman’s, a premiere retail florist in Minneapolis. Bachman’s used a numbering system to identify each of its departments. The number assigned to wholesale gift imports division was, you guessed it, 56. Now headquartered in Eden Prairie, Minnesota, Department 56 has become a leader in the giftware, collectibles and holiday decorating industry and is best known for our hand-crafted lighted villages, Snow babies figurines and extensive lines of holiday and home decorative products.
