Ruttan family ephemera -E.H. Ruttan and Son General Store, Hardisty, Packing Tape.

By in ruttan's place



I wanted to share a family heirloom, a roll of gummed paper packing tape from my Great Grandfather’s General Store in Hardisty, Alberta. It dates from about the depression (not the current one, I mean about 1932-33), and is slightly stuck together from the gum, but I’ve unrolled a little as you see.

Nice phone numbers, back then!

Read about my family history, and Hardisty Alberta on my website here.

    Neat stuff! I love the telephone number. When you think about it, remember when we had only 7 without the area code?

    Hello, this is interesting. My grandmother’s maiden name was Myrtle Ruttan. I don’t know much about my father’s family because my dad died when I was 12. I know my mom was born and grew up on a farm at Hardisty so I m pretty sure I’m related to the Hardisty Ruttans.

    I notice this post is 8 years old but I’m writing in case you still monitor it.

    That’s great. There’s lots of Ruttan info on the Ruttan family history group on Facebook.
