That guy


I thought I had shown you this guy before in another location, but I can't seem to find it! In any case, apparently you can find him at a few different places around the city. This sighting was at the Brookfield Place in downtown Toronto.

Do you mean they move him around, or that there are other images of whomever he is?

It's that guy!

He is dressed warmly for the cooler that is on the way.

@Paul - there are three statues (at least that I've heard of) depicting the same man at different locations around town. I'll post the other one I've seen sometime this week.

@Stefan - that's exactly what I said when I saw him!

Reminds me a little of Teddy Roosevelt! The Brookfield Place is very nice. Toronto does some great things in the urban area.

He cuts a very dashing figure, I am sure there is a great story behind this if, as Halcyon says, there are at least three of them.

He gets around...

Nice sculpture.

It makes me smile that he gets around!

I think there are a lot more than 3 of them around town. I haven't seen this one before!

It looks like a work of the series of "businessman" statues by William McElcheran...

I love the colors and the statue. Nice! What happened to Halcyon Travels? I miss your posts, but I know how much time it can take, too.

Who's that guy? Dapper...reminds me of the way my grandfather and dad dressed when I was little. Life was more formal.

That would be a terrific idea for an artist. Do multiple sculptures of a generic model and place them in unexpected places around Toronto.

For some reason, he reminds me of Alfred Hitchcock on the verge of saying, "Good Evening".

This man must be a famous person in your town.

I hate the new word verification. Since I have trouble reading those "words", I am assuming others do too.
