The 1901 Editions of the T. Eaton Co. Limited Catalogues for Spring & Summer, Fall & WinterBook - 1970
In 1901 Timothy Eaton had become one of the world's outstanding retail merchant. Through the pages of the 1901 Eaton's catalogs the rural and quiet life in that period comes vividly to life. Some will relive the days of their youth, others will remember the furnishings and equipment they saw stored in their grandmother's attic, and the young will smile and be amused at that very strange and different era.All members of the family spent hours enjoying by oil or gas light the fascinating and interesting illustrations and descriptions of items including: butter-churns, ostrich feathers, men's fur coats, brass and iron bedsteads, organs, shoo-fly rockers, graphophones, bibles, seal lined underwear, Agnew's heart cure, wigs, ladies' automobile and sealette coats, medical batteries and, of course, Granny's Gift Box of Tom Smith's Toy Crackers.
