Return To Lower Bay Station

As part of this year's Doors Open, the TTC let the public pay a visit (in earnest this time) to the Lower Bay subway station to see what only film and maintenance crews have been able to see for the past 40 years. To be frank, it wasn't as exciting as I'd anticipated, but the displays, old brochures and video footage of some of the movies filmed down there made for an informative half-hour or so.

Probably the most interesting thing about the station was the state of disrepair the "Bay-Yorkville" signs had become and thus, that is the focus of this post.

Would it be bad punmanship to call this a "Bay Window"?

This was one of the better looking signs on the platform

For those days when the station is in a New York state of sign

I don't normally hang out at the "Y"....

Damaged signs weren't only underground, as evidenced by the Bellair Street exit.
