Nice placement. I'll have to wander over to check it out.

Got a picture of one of the newer ones in St. John's. But first... this happened earlier, a mutual friend (in St. John's) of Ayreonaut (in Calgary) liked this post. I shared it because, I mean... a moose? Etc. I wasn't being negative toward Toronto at all, I just didn't get how this image exemplifies Toronto. It's more generic Canadiana at first glance:



(An aside, I do remember that raccoon upon closer inspection. That was fun!)

Then later I shared the pic of the mural at Purity Factories in St. John's (they make all our cookies and crackers and sugary drinks and treats. Basically every single thing they make is FOUNDATIONAL to some annual event here - Purity syrup at Christmas, for example; or Jam Jams on snow days, or lemon crackers for Sunday brunch).

And Ayreonaut got me good, lol

The moose could be read as a reference to Charles Pachter's work, especially the iconic painting "Queen on a Moose". It doesn't really get more Toronto (and yes, generic Canadiana because, if you're from Toronto, why wouldn't it be? )
