Saving The Sign

Andy | Friday, April 21, 2017 | | Best Blogger Tips
Continuing from yesterday's posting. The the iconic Honest Ed’s sign will be saved and place outside the Ed Mirvish Theatre in downtown Toronto in honour of the store’s founder. A plaque at ground level will explain the history of the store and its connection to the theatre. This is one of the ways that people of Toronto preserve the city's heritage and history.

  3. I 'honestly' hope they found everyone in 'Ed's' that got 'lost' before they tear it down. Thanks for sharing this piece of history.

  4. Good news that the sign is being saved. I bought a wooden rolling pin in Ed's when I first came to Toronto in 1967. I still have it and use it whenever an apple pie is requested by the family. And many years later I met Ed Mirvish in one of his restaurants and told him about it.

  5. You wouldn't want anyone to forget about Ed. Was this really that good a store? That's a big sign and will take up a lot of space, but it is iconic of Toronto...

  7. That is the very good news, Andy. I like that the people of Toronto are not going to give up on this beautiful historical building.
    I also wanted to say to you for a long time that your photography reminds me of my favorite Canadian photographer Fred Herzog. He also photographed real life of his city Vancouver.
