Heritage Sign

This is one of the type of sign you will find around the province giving information about various historic sites. This one is found beside the Enoch Turner  Schoolhouse in the Corktown neighbourhood and it was the school which was depicted in the Underpass Art Three of a week ago (click HERE). I will show you the school tomorrow.

That's a very pristine sign with lots of interesting info!

That sign is very much like the historical markers we find here.

I've seen signs like that here as well. We do tend to get more federal signs as opposed to provincial ones marking places of merit.

Thank goodness for Mr. Turner caring enough to share his wealth for the children and a free school! Bravo!

Apparently there are 831 historical plaques in the City Of Toronto. Checkout the link. Toronto's Historical Plaques

Fortunately in England, at any rate, education produces no effect whatsoever. If it did, it would prove a serious danger to the upper classes, and probably lead to acts of violence in Grosvenor Square.

I like seeing these blue signs. Had no idea there were 813 of them, though!

Lesley said...

oops, 831, actually!!

Much more easily read than our historic markers. Something to do with the color of the background, I think.

It's great that they give some info about historic sites, very interesting. More and more here you find signs where you can scan them with your phone and get to a website with lots of info, pictures, videos etc on your phone.

I love it when concerned citizens are able to save something from destruction. It mus infuriate developers, though.

Nice sign the gold on blue background.

The blue and gold look very nice together! We also have historic markers very similar to this here in Florida.
