1042 Queen St W | February 2014
The same scene from three, four, six, seven and eight winters earlier:
In the final photo above, from January 2006, the storefront is much the same as it had been for over twenty five years, the most iconic and most photographed frozen storefront on Queen West. (In the 1980s there were three rows of “PRINTING” hanging in the window, visible in photos of Patrick Cummins.) The display was shown some love in this century before it finally gave up the ghost, since my first picture of the place, from 2000, shows the letters more messed up:
(Above: April 2009) There were a few short-lived murals in 2008 and 2009 once the shop was boarded up, before the man and fish just stuck.
(Above: August 2013) The current man and fish mural was painted in the fall of 2009 by Alexa Hatanaka, Kellen Hatanaka, and Logan Miller. It has been there long enough to become iconic as well. May 2012 BlogTO published an article looking for a home for the mural.
