The B y

The B y

Some signs have alter egos: they appear to be one thing by day and another by night. Here’s one I noticed recently: the Bay when the sun’s up and the “B y” after hours.

Somehow it’s comforting to know that even a sign as iconic as this one can suffer from burnt out bulbs now and then.

    Not sure whether the missing letter should be replaced with an “A” or a “U”.

    Nice! Thanks Barry, I’ll never see this sign the same way again!

    Also get to appreciate the graphic nature of the B

    Yes, that’s got to be one of the most distinctive graphic designs in Canada. They could probably drop the rest of the logo, the way Nike did with the swoosh.
