Another utility box that references the history of its location, this one is located in the Weston neighbourhood. Weston was the site of the CCM (Canada Cycle & Motor Company) plant until it closed in 1983. The company was formed in 1899 and produced most of the bicycles that Canadian kids rode through until the 1960s. I had 2 of them! In the winter the workers at the plant made ice skates from the scrap metal from the bikes. The artist for this one is Robin Hesse and she made a great choice using the Penny Farthing image, don't you think?
