Weird. Is that a replica of something that used to be there? Google Streetview doesn't show anything on that wall in any of the old photos

Edit: Is that an invented sign for the business that used to be in the building? Or is that a replica of an old sign? https://www.acotoronto.ca/show_building.php?BuildingID=2719
It must be a contemporary take on RG McLean's logos and marks, over the years, appearing to combine three stages of their branding.

Must be their Section 37 art contribution...
There's quite a number of Katharine Harvey artworks coming to Yonge & Rich (including the Lyres that were seen in a photo on previous pages) as part of the Percent for Public Art program, but yes, this may be another piece related to Section 37.

This song captures a lot of the demolition carnage for much of downtown Toronto during the ~70's.
