About The Poster:

Advertising carton promoting a fashion show presented in one of Montreal famous department store once named the Robert Simpson Company Limited. The fashion show was sponsored by the Montreal Council of women.

"The Robert Simpson Company Limited, commonly known as Simpsons (formerly Simpson's until 1972) and sometimes as Simpson in Quebec, was a Canadian department store chain that had its earliest roots in a store opened in 1858 by Robert Simpson. 

In 1952 Simpson's started a 50-50 joint venture in Canada named Simpsons-Sears Limited (later became Sears Canada) with Sears, Roebuck, the American retailer. Simpsons-Sears stores remained distinct from the Simpson's stores and the parent companies' agreement included language to keep them from competing too directly with each other.

The Hudson's Bay Company purchased the Simpsons-branded stores in 1978, but they were later converted to The Bay stores by the early 1990s. As part of the 1978 agreement, U.S.-based Sears acquired full ownership of Simpsons-Sears Limited." (Source: Wikipedia contributors. "Simpsons (department store)." Wikipedia, The Free Encyclopedia)

This advertising carton is in good condition, would be a beautiful addition to a girl's room or even a clothing store.
