Canadian History Lesson Time:
Eaton’s was a chain of Sears-like department stores. It was originally founded in 1869 and operated a mail-order business (again, much like Sears). During the earlier part of the 20th century, people could order floorplans and materials to build houses out of the Eaton’s catalogue, in addition to clothing and other household items.
Of all the far more important things I could have drawn today, I chose to work on this.
…I regret nothing.
