One lazy summer day, Sarah and I were taking a quick browse through the Value Village in Leslieville. At the front of the store, one item quickly caught Sarah's eye: a giant mug with the TTC logo on one side and a front end loader on the reverse.
Naturally we bought it.
I've tried to track down any information about the mug and come up with very little. The only hint on the mug itself is a 1982 copyright date under the logo. Our guesses:
- Part of a set available only to TTC employees (supported by a similar mug with a 1981 date found on Craigslist), perhaps as part of a holiday gift box like the model cars I receive from my employer each year
- A retirement gift
- A commemorative item for those involved with the construction/opening of the Scarborough RT (opened 1985)
If you have any background information about this mug, please leave a comment. - JB
