CIVIC – The Medical Shoppe Pharmacy Sign
As reported in Ottawa Rewind it looks like the new owners of the building are looking into restoring this iconic sign. An Ottawa landmark! That would be great! I do remember it lit and spinning but I have to think really hard.
I always thought the building was mid-century modern but I read that at the time that specific style was called Googie style, a subsivision of futurist architecture which derives its style from cars, jets, spaceship, and the atomic age – Oh I feel another architecture post coming on.
