Bond Saloon

Bond Saloon

One of the pleasures of looking at Toronto signs is that there are so many in more than one language to discover. Here’s one in English and Tamil for a hair salon.

Saloon, rather. The business name has a tough-guy ring that also conjures up Agent 007.

I imagine it’s the proprietor in the painting and I wonder if he painted the portrait himself.  On Flickr there’s a photo of the same sign taken a few years ago, and the shirt is a different colour. I guess the sign is repainted now and then.

Wouldn’t it be something if his hairstyle got updated every so often? Or if he gradually looked more mature with each repainting?
