Good-bye, Jilly's!

Well, the big news in Toronto in the last few days (thanks to Mayor Rob Ford being in hiding rehab), is that the building housing Jilly's strip club (mentioned a few posts ago) has been sold and Jilly's will have to vacate the premises.

Strange, but welcome news, is that the new owner does not plan to turn the building into condos — although a Toronto Star editorial expressed doubts.

You can check back to the previous post to find what I know of the history of the building, but this news gives me a chance to include a few more pictures of the terra cotta faces on the building. Per the earlier post, I haven't been able to find out - yet - any stories behind these faces, but I will take another look into this in the coming days.
