Manitoba Business: T. Eaton Company

This retail store chain was established in Ontario by Timothy Eaton. He opened a store at Winnipeg in 1905 and it served as the flagship for the prairies for the next several decades. Catalogue sales were managed from an adjacent building. Among the items sold from the catalogue were plans for buildings such as residences, schoolhouses, and barns.
