Back to school over the years

It's back to school time. Though the fashions and prices may have changed over the century, most of the basics haven't. Here's a look back !

Eaton's Back to School
The Blue Store

Before school starts, parents have to get their kids dressed and supplied. Here are a couple of Back to School sales from Eaton's in 1906 and The Blue Store in 1905.

We're just one day into the 2015 Back to School season and already a child has been seriously injured in a car crash. Back in the 30s and 40s, when being a pedestrian was much more dangerous, safety was a big concern. This ad is from 1939.

Back to School

Most kids don't rejoice when it comes time to hit the classroom after a long, lazy summer. Here are some students returning to Alexander School in 1931.
