It's a good thing

Someone felt compelled to cover the large grey traffic-signal control box at the corner of Spadina and Baldwin with floral mac-tac:

Beautified box

I suspect the City Beautification Ensemble has graduated from spray paint to adhesive-backed plastic film. Their powers are growing.

Whoever's responsible did a really good job. Note how the colours seem to have been chosen to match the recently-repainted facade of Grossman's Tavern, across the street. And look how carefully the mac-tac was cut to fit:

Martha Stewart herself couldn't have done better.

Of course, that may not have been a traffic-signal control box at all.

Hah. Awesome. I just noticed this for the first time, today, and it made me very very happy. I was also amazed at how little reaction it seemed to provoke. Oh well.
