Play It Again, Sam

Camera: Pentax Spotmatic. Yonge And Gould.

In memory of Sam The Record Man. For those of you outside of Ontario, Sams was one of the preeminent record chains in this province, if not the country. The f;agship store, shown here, is as much a Toronto icon as the CN Tower or Queen's Park. Unfortunately, the store is closing on June 30th. Today, most of the memorabilia associated with the store will be auctioned off. Originally, the owners planned on auctioning off the sign shown here, but after much protest from the community. city council stepped in and declared the building and sign to be a heritage building, so it cannot be sold and must be preserved with the building.
