Eaton's Goes to war

he First World War transformed Canada. During that war, 3,327 Eaton's employees enlisted to fight. Each time one of them was shipped overseas, a photo was displayed prominently in the Toronto store just steps from Mackenzie House. 2,000 of these portraits survived and have become part of the T. Eaton Company records at the Archives of Ontario. In commemoration of Canada's 150th birthday, Mackenzie House staff have been actively searching out accounts of the lives of these men and urging the public to come forward to share their stories of the soldiers with us. Who were these men? Come to our exhibit and find out. Included with regular admission.

The event runs from September 17 to December 31 at the Mackenzie House. The exhibit is open Tuesday to Friday from 12:00 pm to 4:00 pm and, Saturday & Sunday from 12:00 pm to 5:00 pm.
