Can't Ignore This one ...

It is garrish, it is loud, it is unique and it is distinctive ...
Kind of like the man who founded it ...
and today we say farewell to Honest Ed Mirvish,
a Canadian Institution in his own rights.
How does one describe the impact Ed Mirvish has
had on the world ???
The proprietor of a unique and unusual store on Bloor St,
a patron of the arts with names like
The Royal Alex,
the Old Vic,
and the Princess of Wales
left as his legacy.
A restauranteur,
and a
Ed Mirvish, in his 92 years left Toronto very different
from when he found it ... and we're all better for it.
Rest in Peace Ed.
And thanks!
