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.

A GIFT FROM ICA PERU. DURING THE EARLY 90'S, LETHBRIDGE HAD A PROFESSIONAL EXCHANGE PROGRAM WITH ICA PERU. THIS EXCHANGE WAS MEANT TO UPDATE THE BUREAUCRATIC METHODS USED IN ICA PERU TO MORE CONTEMPORARY POLITICAL AND CIVIC PHILOSOPHY. THIS BANNER WAS A GIFT FROM PERU TO SYMBOLIZE THIS RELATIONSHIP. UNFORTUNATELY, THE EXCHANGE PROGRAM WAS NOT PARTICULARLY SUCCESSFUL SINCE EVERY TIME A NEW MAYOR WAS ELECTED (THEY COULD BY LAW ONLY SERVE ONE TERM), THE ENTIRE BUREAUCRACY WAS CHANGED. THIS MEANT THAT ANYTHING THAT THE PREVIOUS BUREAUCRATS LEARNED THROUGH THIS EXCHANGE WAS LOST. *UPDATE* IN 2014 COLLECTIONS ASSISTANT JANE EDMUNDSON CONDUCTED A SURVEY OF ART OBJECTS, INCLUDING SOME ASSOCIATED WITH THE EXCHANGE BETWEEN ICA, PERU AND THE CITY OF LETHBRIDGE. THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION ABOUT THE PROFESSIONAL EXCHANGE PROGRAM BETWEEN ICA, PERU AND LETHBRIDGE WAS FOUND IN LETHBRIDGE HERALD ARTICLES FROM JANUARY 30 AND OCTOBER 16, 1991. IN JANUARY 1991 THE MAYOR AND CITY DIRECTOR OF ICA, PERU VISITED LETHBRIDGE FOR 10 DAYS TO OBSERVE THE OPERATION OF VARIOUS CITY DEPARTMENTS THROUGH THE MUNICIPAL PROFESSIONAL EXCHANGE PROJEXT. THE PURPOSE OF THE PROGRAM WAS TO MATCH MANAGERIAL AND TECHNICAL EXPERTS IN CANADIAN MUNICIPALITIES WITH THEIR COUNTERPARTS IN DEVELOPING COUNTRIES. AT THE TIME OF THE EXCHANGE, ICA WAS A COMMUNITY OF 200,000 PEOPLE, WITH AGRICULTURE AND WINE PRODUCTION BEING ITS TWO LARGEST INDUSTRIES. A SECOND PERUVIAN DELEGATION VISITED LETHBRIDGE IN OCTOBER 1991, AND A THIRD WAS MEANT TO ARRIVE IN EARLY 1992, BUT NO ARTICLES WERE FOUND TO SUGGEST THAT THE PROGRAM CONTINUED FURTHER.

BANNERS IDENTIFIED SPORTS BEING PLAYED AT DIFFERENT VENUES. DONOR IS UNCERTAIN, BUT BELIEVES BADMINTON MAY HAVE BEEN PLAYED AT THE UNIVERSITY ON ACCOUNT OF REGULATION CEILING HEIGHT. AFTER THE GAMES ENDED, ALL MATERIALS WERE CENTRALIZED AT A DEPOT TO BE DISTRIBUTED (EG. WRESTLING MATS, FENCING EQUIPMENT) TO LOCAL FACILITIES. LEFT OVER MATERIALS, SUCH AS THIS BANNER, WERE AVAILABLE FOR SOUVENIRS. DONOR PICKED UP THIS BANNER ON ACCOUNT OF HAVING INSTRUCTED BADMINTON AT THE UNIVERSITY. THE MASCOT ON THE BANNER IS FARLEY PHEASANT WHICH, ACCORDING TO DONOR WAS LOCALLY DESIGNED. THE WINTER GAMES CAME TO LETHBRIDGE AND SOUTHERN ALBERTA FEBRUARY 6-24,1975. THE "GAMES" WERE AWARDED BASED UPON A TEAM EFFORT FROM THE COMMUNITIES IN SOUTHERN ALBERTA. IN ORDER TO HOST 3,000 ATHLETES IN 16 SPORTS THE CITY BUILT TWO NEW FACILITIES AND UPGRADED OTHERS. THESE INCLUDE THE SPORTSPLEX (SPEED SKATING OVAL) AND STAN SIWIK POOL. VOLUNTEERS CAME FROM EVERY COMMUNITY SOUTH OF CLARESHOLM, EAST OF BLAIRMORE, WEST OF BOW ISLAND AND NORTH OF THE US-CANADIAN BORDER. FOR MORE INFORMATION ON THE DONOR'S ROLE IN THE GAMES, SEE P20010087002-GA.
