|It's 2017, let's get nutty!|
On with the show! Today's featured ghost signs are from Winnipeg, MB. I spent a glorious afternoon by myself wandering around downtown Winnipeg, I was told later that was probably not the best idea but I am here to tell my tale. Winnipeg has a very picturesque downtown and I would like to get back and explore more.
You might recognize the Nutty Club name if you're in Canada. Founded in Winnipeg in 1905 by A.E. Scott and J.L. Bathgate. They still make candy, nuts, baking items and some products under the 'Food Club' label and have warehouses across Canada. Their striped packaging and logo seems to have remained the same over the years and is a nice reminder of days gone by. I found a complex of a few buildings here but found out later that the oldest buildings are on another street and I never saw them unfortunately. The Mr. Can-D-Man logo looks like he is about to tip his hat and break into some barber shop quartet style song. I hope he never retires and I hope to see his other buildings next time I go. Here's to another 100+ years of the Nutty Club and the Can-D-Man!
Thank for visiting! Cheers to a happy and healthy 2017!
