Deco On College St

I took this pic a few weeks ago before the leaves came out on the trees so that you can see most of the wonderful Art Deco details on this College St building. I couldn't find any info on its original occupant but it was a paint store for many years before becoming a computer store. There is a bit of a campaign going on to attempt to have some of the buildings along this part of College St heritage protected but I'm not sure if it has been successful.

Your sign makes me wonder if Canadian Computers speak with an accent? Ahy? Fine looking building. Always liked the Deco style.

...this like many buildings here, the lower floors have been destroyed and only the tops retain their former beauty.

I love those decorative touches on this building. It would be great if such pretty buildings could be preserved in some way.

A clash of cultures between upper and lower storeys.

I was there the other day and took pics of those buildings and couldn't find out much about them either.
