AT­TEND­ING TO DE­TAILS

Canada's History - - BOOKS -

The Toronto-based Beauchamp fam­ily has op­er­ated a cus­tom tai­lor­ing busi­ness for civil­ian and mil­i­tary clien­te­les through three gen­er­a­tions. The new book Wal­ter Beauchamp: A Tai­lored His­tory of Toronto (Fig­ure 1 Pub­lish­ing, 175 pages, $40) por­trays the evo­lu­tion of the busi­ness over more than a cen­tury while telling about the of­fi­cers and sol­diers, may­ors and prime min­is­ters, judges, artists, and ex­plor­ers who shopped there. This im­age shows a col­lec­tion of war medal rib­bons that was pro­duced as a tai­lor’s guide and as a show­piece for the Beauchamp and How store in 1951.
