The Waltons (Department Store) Chain
paper bag from Waltons with a receipt for cards/wrap totaling
$1.84 purchased on 30/05/1983, laminate, glue, drawing pins.
On the 30th May 1983, I was twelve months and 7 days away from being born. On this day my grandmother was purchasing cards/wrap for the grand total of $1.84. In 1981 the infamous Alan Bond had purchased Waltons Ltd, a department store chain that had over 60 stores throughout Australia. By 1983 Waltons had become a financial disaster, losing $199 million, in 1987 Waltons was no more.
