CARDBOARD SIGN, WITH IMITATION WOOD-GRAIN TEXTURE. LIGHT BEIGE AND BROWN. HANDWRITTEN IN BLACK INK "MODERN TIMES. MANY AN OLD-TIMER, SAFE IN HIS GRAVE, WOULD BE ASTOUNDED AT THE GREAT CHANGE OVER THE OLD DEEPLY CUT BUFFALO TRAIL COUNTRY AND TODAY'S SMART LITTLE TOWNS, WELL TILLED FARMS, FENCED RANCHES, HARD SURFACED ROADS, TO SAY NOTHING OF REFRIGERATION, AIR CONDITIONING AND THERMOSTAT CONTROL OF OIL HEAT WITHOUT THE BACK BREAKING TOIL OF BUCKING UP CORDWOOD WHICH MIGHT BENEFIT SOME OF TODAY'S YOUTH BUT LEFT THE OLD FOLKS UNENTHUSED. MODERN TIMES MAY HAVE TAKEN MUCH OF THE TOIL OUT OF LIVING BUT THEY HAVE ALSO TAKEN MUCH IN MENTAL SATISFACTION, INDEPENDENCE, PRIDE OF ACCOMPLISHMENT, AND MAN'S ABILITY TO LIVE BY HIS OWN EFFORTS. GRAND DAD WAS ABLE TO GET A START FARMING BY BORROWING A PLOW FROM THE OLD-MAN, A TEAM ON CREDIT FROM A NEIGHBOR, A FEW BUSHELS OF SEED GRAIN, A SIDE OF PORK AND A BUSHEL OF POTATOES. HIS GRAND SON NEEDS $30,000 FOR MACHINERY ALONE." HAMMER, MONKEY WRENCH, AND SEVERAL DOLLAR SIGNS PICTURED BELOW.

MUSEUM OBTAINED ITEMS FROM LETHBRIDGE EATON'S STORE IN 1999. DUE TO COMPANY BANKRUPTCY, EATON'S STORES ACROSS CANADA WERE CLOSED, INCLUDING THE LETHBRIDGE LOCATION IN PARK PLACE MALL. *UPDATE* IN 2014 COLLECTIONS ASSISTANT JANE EDMUNDSON CONDUCTED A SURVEY OF ART OBJECTS, INCLUDING THOSE ASSOCIATED WITH THE T. EATON COMPANY STORES IN LETHBRIDGE. THE FOLLOWING BRIEF HISTORY OF LETHBRIDGE'S EATON'S STORE WAS DEVELOPED WITH INFORMATION FROM GALT ARCHIVES AND LETHBRIDGE HERALD ARTICLES FROM THE FALL OF 1988. THE T. EATON COMPANY WAS FOUNDED IN TORONTO IN 1869 BY TIMOTHY EATON. THE FIRST LETHBRIDGE EATON'S 'TECO' STORE WAS OPENED IN 1927 IN THE BASEMENT OF THE DOMINION BLOCK ON THE CORNER OF 4 AVENUE AND SIXTH STREET SOUTH. AFTER A FIRE, THE BUILDING WAS RENOVATED AND COMPLETELY TAKEN OVER BY THE EATON'S STORE, WHICH OPERATED IN THAT LOCATION UNDER PERIODIC RENOVATIONS FROM 1929 UNTIL THE OPENING OF THE PARK PLACE MALL IN 1988, IN WHICH EATON'S WAS AN ANCHOR RETAILER. IN 1989 A PORTION OF THE UNIVERSITY OF LETHBRIDGE ART COLLECTION WAS TEMPORARILY PUT ON DISPLAY IN THE VACANT EATON'S BUILDING, AND PROPOSALS WERE MADE TO MAKE THE INSTALLATION PERMANENT, BUT EVENTUALLY THE PROPERTY WAS SOLD AND DEMOLISHED TO MAKE WAY FOR THE CONSTRUCTION OF A BANK OF MONTREAL BRANCH. IN 1999 THE EATON'S STORE IN PARK PLACE MALL CLOSED JUST PRIOR TO THE ANNOUNCEMENT OF THE BANKRUPTCY OF THE LARGER T. EATON COMPANY LIMITED.
