Only a few advertising personalMy father was an associate of Winnipeg's The T. EATON Co. Limited main store in the 1970's Western Divisional Advertising Department. Only a few advertising personal are around today. Our family have also been part of the Eaton's family (1930's) prior to my father becoming employed, you can say he is a true blooded "Eatonian" even though I'm told Royal blood runs in our veins, but that is another story. My father started to collect key vintage historical artifacts and print advertising items from The T. EATON Co. Limited when the Winnipeg Store was closed in 1999, and then to his disbelief the store in 2001 was demolished one floor at a time and gone forever. We're continuing in building EATON'S one item at a time. Giving back to the community through showcasing of this unique collection, thus maintaining the integrity and legacy of the T. EATON Co Limited. This collection is dedicated to the memory of every person who had shopped and who had worked with this great Canadian company.
