We’re working hard to set up the ‘Enseignes Montréal Signs’ community database – a kind of wikipedia for signs old and new in Montréal. More news as it happens..
Another part of the project is to step in and try to save certain signs that are under threat of removal/loss, or, having been saved by caring community members, are in need of new storage space. This is a very modest, low-budget effort which will nevertheless see some signs displayed semi-permanently inside one or more campus buildings at Concordia University.
Above, some of the Ben’s Restaurant signage, courtesy of the demolition crew; and, the Warshaw sign, courtesy the SDBSL (10/3/08). (My grad student helpers and I had just picked up the signs; we then laid them out on the grass at the Loyola campus to log everything, before placing it all in secure storage.)
