Description

This window display was in an Elizabeth Street, Sydney, window of the David Jones department store. It shows a medieval-style castle topped with a crenelated parapet being guarded by mice carrying spears and wearing helmets. A lion wearing a crown and a cloak (the king) is standing in the doorway. David Jones banners also hang from the castle. The mistletoe above the doorway indicates that this was a Christmas window display.
