The T. Eaton Company Limited was The Department store in urban Canada for a time. Started in 1869 and continuing until 1999 it was also famous for its catalogue mail orders from 1884. KW remembers the large Eaton's store facing across Queen Street West in Toronto at its major rival of the time, Robert Simpson (Simpson's). The Christmas shopping was so brisk at such a major draw of those two giants that KW remembers police there stopping traffic to allow mass J-walking across Queen St. between the two stores.

The Amphion phonograph was manufactured in Canada for sale by Eaton's.

KW found the following Eaton's advert in the Toronto World from page three (although folio labeled page 16) April 9, 1920.

Below, I have isolated and expanded the information for each model shown. Note that the handles on the machines on the left of the advert have been placed on the wrong side--for 'aesthetic' purposes(?)--but the letters of the name are correct.
