Sign of the times

These advertising signs aren’t among the worst that can be seen around the city but this is Islington and Bloor after all. Nevertheless, it seems doubtful that when the Kingsway Kiwanis Club donated Riley Park in 1950 that the park would later gain support by succumbing to posting an add on the back of its batting cage. These signs may be legal (http://illegalsigns.ca/2008/07/08/cbc-tv-news-coverage-of-illegalsignsca/) but not so long ago a contribution would get one’s name on a brass plaque rather than litter a public park with advertising.
