Toronto T's

memoryYouTube user Retrontario frequently uploads fantastic retro-Toronto-centric gems. These clips never fail to bring back a ton of memories for me, so I feature them from time to time.

This ad is from Stitches for Toronto T's and it aired back in 1985. I remember Toronto T's, City-TV promotional garments that were surprisingly popular back in the 80s. In fact, I remember owning a Toronto T myself.

If my memory serves me corrrectly, I believe you'd win prizes if a City-TV camera man spotted you wearing your Toronto T. Or maybe it wasn't a camera man... I'm hazy on the details. Does anyone out there remember the Toronto T City-TV promo deets?

I remember them, Mike. And you're right - if they spotted you in one of these shirts you'd win a prize. I don't think they used the phrase "if a CITYtv camerman", but that was the assumption. A sure-fire way of getting spotted was when you wore them to a summer concert at Kingsway Music Theatre or Exhibition Stadium.
