//memorial for Ed Mirvish.

Was passing through the Annex again yesterday (after wrapping up at the Parkdale Arts Fest), so I stopped off to see the streetside tribute passersby have created in honour of Honest Ed. 

The numbers you see on the ground are sidewalk art which runs across the Bloor Street length of the store.  This part read "1914-2007".  Ed was about the age of the narrator I created in Circa: An Urban Retrospect... I can only imagine what it must have been like to live through the whirlwind that was the last century.
