City TV Speakers Corner, Toronto Wall Art
If you're over 45 and lived in Toronto, you'll remember "Baby Blue Movies" and "CITY TV" the brainchild of Moses Znaimer. Famous landmarks and historic buildings are David Crighton's stock in trade. He has created an archive of beautifully detailed illustrations capturing all the phases of CITY-TV - Toronto.
The western facade of the station with the first Speakers Corner.
Crightonism: I can provide custom lettering in the sign on the right available for the name of your favourite City Show or V.J.
"I used to work at CityTV, back in the day, and one of my colleagues, a cameraman ..., was talking about these prints -- how they used to give them out for 10 years service. I didn't make 10 years -- was only there for 8, and now with Moses gone and a couple of corporate takeovers the place is very different. So I was moved to try to buy that print. And then on the site of course I fell in love with my mis-spent youth on the Kingsway, and the late lamented Sam's (the Record Man) sign.
so that's the story. I imagine you've heard many like it.
Denis McGrath, Cameraman"
