When department stores were a new thing, the customers would have needed floorwalkers. Think about it: you've only ever shopped in little specialised shops along the street and suddenly here's this big building that has lots of different stuff on several floors. How do you know where to get shoes?

They could have a sign like they do now, but a distinguished gentleman greeting the customer and answering their questions gives a much nicer impression of the place.

Now if I go to Target or somewhere I usually ask the bag-checking guy at the door where stuff is. Big hardware stores have a guy on the door too. He has maps to hand out.

If they still had them and I said hey Captain Peacock I would probably get a blank stare.
