Bloor Station Back In The Day

Here's Bloor Station, some time back in the days before people were very good at dating their photos. Those elegant black-on-white signs were the standard for the TTC in the '50s and '60s and, I believe, were in the Commission's original unique typeface.

If you're a font freak, you can find lots more about the fascinating history of TTC typography in a so-impressively-detailed-I've-only-just-skimmed-it paper by Joe Clark, which I found thanks to Spacing, and is housed online over here.
