McCaul Cigar Store

Saw this at the corner of McCaul and Queen over Christmas. Love it when an old sign is uncovered (remember it used to be that crappy variety store). Who knows how long until it's covered up again or trashed with the new developments.
Was hand painted on stone slab and looked like there may have been neon overtop at one point.

My parents owned that "crappy variety store" from 1972 to 1984. They worked very hard and were well known and loved by their many regular customers.
