Honest Eds, a Toronto icon, at the corner of Bathurst and Bloor since 1948

Standing on Bloor street looking south through the alley beside Honest Eds store.  There is a glass covered walkway between the buildings on either side of the alley.  On the side of the wwalkway is a sign that syas 'Honest Ed Alley'.  The alley leads to a parking lot.

Looking south from Bloor Street towards the parking lot behind Honest Eds.

There are a few murals on the buildings that back onto the parking lot.

Woman with boxing gloves has been on the back of Trainers Fitness for a few years.  The newer dog is painted on the back of A Leg Up Pet Services. 

The back of two buildings with a narrow passageway between the two.  Both are two storeys high.  The one on the left is painted light purple and has the words Southern Accent written in yellow letters.  The one on the right is a mural of a man paddling a canoe down a tropical river, with a monkey and a parrot also in the picture.
