Varsity

This is the sign at the entrance to the University of Toronto's Varsity Centre which consists of a hockey arena and a stadium with track and field facilities. The arena dates from 1926 but the original 1920s stadium was demolished in 2002 and a new one opened here in 2006. Located in the same block along Bloor St as the Royal Ontario Museum and the Royal Conservatory of Music, this is a prime site downtown making it perfect for a variety of events.

Well done theme photo...it's a great sign!

And I'm glad to hear that you didn't get clobbered too badly from Sandy. Sure feel for all those people who lost everything!

An impressive sign - standing bold above the roofline for an important building.

Same block as music and a museum - so at closing time this block is where the nerds and the jocks get to mingle?
