Last week’s photo details:

“Pushing ladies, anxious to take advantage of fire sale bargains, broke the door at Ann Payne’s Dress Shop last Thursday morning and the RCMP had to be called to control them. The scramble continued inside and two ladies, both wanting the same coat tore the sleeves out of it. A line-up of ladies the same size as this one milled around the door for over six hours waiting their turns to get inside.” October 1955
