Humber Bay Driftwood Sign for Toronto

If you bike, jog or walk the waterfront trail just west of the Humber Bay Arch Bridge, you've likely seen the new Toronto sign that's been erected this week. Local artists Thelia Sanders-Shelton and Julie Ryan built it from driftwood that washed up on a nearby beach.


It's only driftwood, so I suggest you see it while it's still standing. I just love shit like this.

Wait... did we steal this idea from Amsterdam, too?

Man, that looks awfully far from the downtown core, that's barely Toronto.

One city name sign too many, are these going to turn into those damn moose statues?

This sign is wonderful. I stopped by for another pic again tonight.

And there's a lot of Toronto still to go to the west. It's the east side of Mimico for goodness sake. You still have to go through New Toronto and Long Branch before you hit Mississauga!
