COLLATIONS – COMMERCIAL

Here are dozens of the variety stores and corner stores that populate Toronto’s neighbourhoods,along with “dead stores,” former stores in between tenants, or converted over to non-commercial usages. Here too are examples of privilege signage provided by sponsoring manufacturers in an effort to promote a certain sense of sameness throughout the city’s otherwise diverse areas. Finally, here are some diachronic studies of specific structures over several decades, showing their evolution over time, some dating back into the 19th century, that were never meant to last anywhere near as long as they have.
