Honest sign


Honest Ed's has apparently been part of the Toronto landscape for quite a number of years. I've passed it many times and the sparkly signs and funny sayings always attract me. Someday I'll actually go inside!

Another Toronto blogger has a daytime view of the sign up and you can see more signs from around the world at Signs, Signs.

superbe enseigne qui fait tres las vegas ;)

Birdman said...

I FEAR any store that would attach this marque. hahahaha!

Valladolid Daily Photo said...

Wonderful light sign. Great shot!

Kate said...

This sign looks so different from the one on the link. I imagine shopping in this store is quite a hoot.

Jacob said...

Super night shot. But, beware of folks who have to proclaim their "honesty" in neon lights!

Lois said...

I would never be able to resist going in a store like that!

Andy said...

You are right it has been around for a long time. Ed was also the owner of Princess of Wales Theatre in Toronto. Nice night photo.

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

Great shot of the sign with the Vegas-style lights. One would wonder whether this proclamation would encourage doubt about the trust and honesty?

Bises,

VP said...

Awesome sign, but I think Birdman has a point here!

EG Wow said...

You know what? I have never been inside! TRUE! But I have driven past it many times. :)

So what's the bargain?

RedPat said...

Ed was quite the guy - gave a lot to the community including free turkeys for everyone at Christmas!
You were in the Annex when you took this pic.

@Birdman, Jacob, Genie & VP - The *real* Torontinians all agree Ed was an all-around good and honest dude! :)

@Lois - we always pass the place at night when it's closed. But you can be sure I'll get in there one of these days.

@Ciel - I'll let you know once I check it out. :)

Will wait to hear of those bargains, with a sign like that I expect lots.

Jack said...

This sign is fantastic. I like the old fashioned marquis signs. It looks completely different from the daytime sign in your link.

Randy said...

For a moment I thought you were in Las Vegas!

JM said...

Super eye-catching! Hope you will not be desappointed once you go inside... :-)

Kim, USA said...

That is beautiful. That is an awesome place to do nighttime photography ^_^

I saw that on Lesley's before and glad to see it all it up -- what a place!

Luna Miranda said...

it looks like a casino.:p
love the lights.

Lesley said...

Halcyon, it is almost as much fun as a casino - and cheaper.

Francisca said...

Honest Ed's has been there forever, I think (1948, actually). I remember it from the early '70s when I lived nearby... and went to the nearby Royal Alex Theatre and Old Ed's Restaurants. :-)

I hate the new word verification. Since I have trouble reading those "words", I am assuming others do too.
