BEGINNING ABOUT 1888, JOB REED BEGAN A MARKET GARDEN BUSINESS IN LETHBRIDGE. HANDMADE BAG IS BELIEVED TO DATE TO ABOUT THAT TIME. SEE P19920020001-GA FOR FURTHER DONOR & REED FAMILY HISTORY. FOR EXTENSIVE INFORMATION ON REED FAMILY EXHIBITION SEE HARDCOPY FILE P19920001001. *UPDATE* IN 2014 COLLECTIONS ASSISTANT JANE EDMUNDSON CONDUCTED A SURVEY OF ART OBJECTS, INCLUDING ONE ASSOCIATED WITH THE REED FAMILY. THE FOLLOWING BIOGRAPHY OF JOB REED WAS DEVELOPED WITH INFORMATION FROM AN ARTICLE ON THE REED FAMILY AND FARM FROM THE DECEMBER 30, 1985 ISSUE OF THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD, REED'S DEATH ANNOUNCEMENT FROM 1906, AND THE GALT ARCHIVES. JOB REED WAS BORN IN SOMERSETSHIRE, ENGLAND ON NOVEMBER 12, 1841. WHEN HE WAS 14, HIS FATHER DIED, LEAVING JOB THE RESPONSIBILITY OF PROVIDING FOR HIMSELF AND HIS WIDOWED MOTHER. HE WORKED FOR THE BRITISH POSTAL SERVICE AND COMPLETED HIS TEACHING CERTIFICATION. HE MARRIED MARY ELIZABETH HOBBS IN 1869, AND IMMIGRATED TO THE UNITED STATES IN 1873, MOVING FROM NEW ORLEANS TO TEXAS AND THEN PENNSYLVANIA, WHERE REED OBTAINED A DEGREE IN MEDICINE. THE COUPLE RETURNED TO ENGLAND, BUT REED'S MEDICAL TRAINING WAS NOT RECOGNIZED THERE, AND IN 1882 THEY CROSSED THE ATLANTIC AGAIN, MOVING WEST ACROSS CANADA IN STAGES, FINALLY ARRIVING IN LETHBRIDGE IN 1886. THE FAMILY HAD SEVEN CHILDREN: RICHARD, HENRY, ELIZABETH (WHO MARRIED GEORGE HERBERT WATSON), JOB JUNIOR (KNOWN AS BUDD), GEORGE, ANNIE, AND ELLA. REED PURCHASED TWO LOTS ON WHAT IS NOW 6TH AVENUE SOUTH. THE FAMILY OWNED AND OPERATED A MARKET GARDEN ON THE PROPERY, AND BUILT A STONE DUPLEX THAT STILL STANDS ON THE 1200 BLOCK OF 6TH AVENUE. REED WORKED AS A COAL MINER TO EARN MORE MONEY TOWARDS INVESTING IN FURTHER LAND, AND RAISED PIGS WITH SCRAP FOOD FROM THE NEARBY RCMP BARRACKS. IN 1901, REED PURCHASED 2.5 SECTIONS OF LAND NEAR PRESENT-DAY GRANUM WITH HIS FOUR SONS AND ONE SON-IN-LAW; HIS SON BILLY LATER TOOK OVER THIS RANCH. REED WAS A JUSTICE OF THE PEACE IN LETHBRIDGE AND A MEMBER OF THE SCHOOL BOARD. IN EARLY 1906, HE PURCHASED EDGEHILL FARM, NEAR SIX MILE COULEE, BUT HE DIED LATER THAT YEAR ON APRIL 25. MARY REED LIVED AT THE FARM FOR YEARS AFTERWARD, AND DIED IN KELOWNA, B.C. IN 1932 AT HOME OF ONE OF HER SONS. BOTH JOB AND MARY REED ARE BURIED IN MOUNTAIN VIEW CEMETERY IN LETHBRIDGE.

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.

THIS CARD WAS SENT TO DONOR KEVIN MACLEAN BY ALBERTA GOVERNMENT TELEPHONES (AGT) WHEN THE CALLING CARD PROGRAM BEGAN AND/OR THE DONOR AGREED TO PARTICIPATE IN PROGRAM, SUSPECTED IN THE LATE 80S. MACLEAN RECALLED FREQUENT, WEEKLY USE OF HIS (NOW TELUS) CARD AROUND APPROXIMATELY 1996 TO 1998 WHEN HE VISITED THE FORMER BOSTON PIZZA OFF OF 1ST AVENUE SOUTH. THE CARD WAS USED IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE ESTABLISHMENT’S PAYPHONE, LOCATED WITHIN ITS FRONT VESTIBULE, SO THAT HE COULD CALL HOME WHEN OUT LATE ON FRIDAY NIGHTS. HE USED HIS CARD WITH ENOUGH FREQUENCY THAT HE NEVER CARRIED IT, HAVING MEMORIZED ITS NUMBER. HIS CARD WAS EVENTUALLY REPLACED WITH A TELUS CALLING CARD. UPDATE: IN MARCH 2020, THE DONOR SHARED THE FOLLOWING: “I RECALL RECEIVING A LETTER FROM TELUS IN APPROXIMATELY 2015-16 (DOCUMENT WAS SADLY DISPOSED OF) THAT INFORMED ME THAT THE TECHNOLOGY THAT SUPPORTED CALLING CARDS WAS OBSOLETE AND THAT MY NUMBER AND ITS USE WAS TO BE DISCONTINUED. THIS WAS OF INTEREST TO ME AS I STILL HAVEN’T COMMITTED TO CARRYING A MOBILE PHONE AND I’M STILL DEPENDENT ON PUBLIC PHONES TO MAKE CALLS OUTSIDE OF MY HOME OR OFFICE. WHEN I RECEIVED THE TELUS LETTER, HOWEVER, IT WAS CLEARLY VISIBLE TO ME THAT THE CARD’S NUMBER WAS OF LITTLE FUTURE VALUE AS PUBLIC PHONES WERE – IN LETHBRIDGE AT LEAST – NEAR IMPOSSIBLE TO LOCATE. AS OF NOW (MARCH, 2020) I AM AWARE OF ONLY ONE SURVIVING, FREESTANDING PHONE BOOTH IN LETHBRIDGE, LOCATED OFF OF CROWSNEST TRAIL AND 28TH STREET SOUTH—THE LOCATION OF A FORMER, NOW DEMOLISHED GAS STATION.”

*UPDATE* IN 2015 COLLECTIONS ASSISTANT JANE EDMUNDSON CONDUCTED A SURVEY OF MUSICAL INSTRUMENTS, INCLUDING THREE DONATED BY THE UKRAINIAN ASSOCIATION OF LETHBRIDGE. THOUGH THE ASSOCIATION HAS DISBANDED, SHE WAS ABLE TO DETERMINE THAT IT IS LIKELY THAT THIS OBJECT AND 81 OTHERS DONATED BY THE ASSOCIATION IN 1973 WERE ORIGINALLY PART OF THE GALT MUSEUM'S 'UKRAINIAN ROOM' EXHIBIT. ACCORDING TO LETHBRIDGE HERALD ARTICLES FROM 1969 AND 1976, AND PHOTOGRAPHS IN THE GALT ARCHIVES (199110764419, 1991107612370, 199110764421, AND 199110764422) THE UKRAINIAN ROOM WAS INSTALLED IN 1966, WHEN THE MUSEUM WAS MOVED FROM THE BOWMAN CENTRE TO THE GALT HOSPITAL BUILDING. THE ROOM WAS FURNISHED WITH OBJECTS DONATED BY THE UKRAINIAN ASSOCIATION, AND THE GROUP HELD ANNUAL TEAS THERE. THOUGH THE CATALOGUE NUMBERS OF THE UKRAINIAN ASSOCIATION DONATION REFLECT A 1973 DONATION DATE, THE INITIAL ACQUISITION YEAR LISTED IN HARDCOPY FILES IS 1966, WHICH ALIGNS WITH THE OPENING DATE OF THE UKRAINIAN ROOM. IN ADDITION, ARCHIVAL PHOTOGRAPHS OF THE ROOM DEPICT OBJECTS THAT ARE NOW HELD IN COLLECTIONS (P19738277001-GA, P19738277002-GA, AND P19738277003-GA CAN BE CLEARLY IDENTIFIED, WITH OTHER OBJECTS IDENTIFIED SPECULATIVELY). IN 1984 THE MUSEUM DISMANTLED ALL ITS DISPLAYS IN PREPARATION FOR THE BUILDING'S RENOVATION AND EXPANSION, AND ACCORDING TO BRAD BROWN, GALT EXHIBIT DESIGNER, WHEN THE FACILITY REOPENED TO THE PUBLIC IN 1985 ALL THE EXHIBITS HAD BEEN REWORKED, AND THE UKRAINIAN ROOM NO LONGER EXISTED.

SEE PERMANENT FILE P19640184000-GA FOR HARDCOPY OF NOTICE. *UPDATE* IN 2019 COLLECTIONS ASSISTANT ELISE PUNDYK CONDUCTED AN ARTIFACT SURVEY THAT INCLUDED A NUMBER OF BARBER-RELATED INSTRUMENTS DONATED BY BOB FAULDS. HIS FULL NAME WAS ROBERT ERNEST FAULDS. ATTEMPTS MADE TO MAKE CONTACT HIS NEXT-OF-KIN WERE UNSUCCESSFUL. AN OBITUARY FOUND IN THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD FOR FAULDS STATES, “BORN, RAISED AND EDUCATED IN TABER, ALBERTA, BOB SPENT THE MAJORITY OF HIS LIFE IN LETHBRIDGE WHERE HE WORKED AS A BARBER AT WESTBROOKS BARBER SHOP, LATER OWNING HIS OWN BUSINESS CALLED BOB’S BARBER SHOP.” JAMES AND HAROLD WESTBROOK WERE THE ORIGINAL PROPRIETORS OF THE WESTBROOKS BARBER SHOP. IT OPENED IN 1917 IN THE BLENNER-HASSETT BLOCK AT 303 6TH STREET SOUTH (LETHBRIDGE DAILY HERALD, 21 JULY 1917). FURTHER RESEARCH INTO HIS BARBER CAREER FOUND A RETIREMENT NOTICE PUBLISHED IN THE HERALD WHICH READS “R. E. FAULDS: I WOULD LIKE TO ANNOUNCE THAT AFTER 48 YEARS OF BARBERING, I WILL BE RETIRING, EFFECTIVE AUGUST 1, 1987.” IN ADDITION TO A SEPTEMBER 6, 1939 PUBLICATION IN THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD STATES “… SOME TABER YOUNG MEN APPLIED [FOR THE WAR], AMONG THEM ROBT. FAULDS, JR., OLDEST SON OF THE LATE CHIEF FAULDS, WHO WEEKS AGO OPENED A NEW BARBER SHOP IN TOWN.” FAULDS’ OBITUARY STATES HE “MARRIED OLIVE CARDWELL [1916-2005] ON MARCH 4, 1942, AND TOGETHER THEY RESIDED IN LETHBRIDGE UNTIL HIS PASSING.” THEIR CHILDREN WERE ROBERT THOMAS AND PHILLIP RONALD. BOB FAULDS PASSED AWAY ON MARCH 14, 1991 AT THE AGE OF 73 YEARS. REFERENCE TO FAULDS’ DONATIONS TO THE MUSEUM WERE FOUND IN THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD. THERE WAS AN IMAGE PUBLISHED OF MUSEUM OFFICIALS ALONG WITH FAULDS TAKING DOWN HIS BARBER POLE FROM ITS 6TH STREET LOCATION (NOVEMBER 29, 1965). A LINE IN THE MARCH 9, 1964 EDITION OF THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD READS, “FAULDS TURNED UP [AT THE CITY OF LETHBRIDGE MUSEUM] WITH TWO STRAIGHT RAZORS. THE SHAVERS ARE MORE THAN 100 YEARS OLD.” PLEASE SEE PERMANENT FILE P19640121000 FOR FURTHER INFORMATION, INCLUDING COPIES OF THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD RESEARCH.
