It's hard to read the name because of the glare. Does it look like it might be Eaton's?

on the back: Eatons Toronto 1927. The T. Eaton Company Limited, later known as Eaton's and then Eaton, was a Canadian department store chain.

Some questions. The image may or may not be 1927. The Maj.-Gen. wears a formation patch which were not commonly worn post FWW. There were five divisions in the CEF, which narrows down the possibilities considerably.
It may be Maj.- Gen. L. J. Lipsett.
