|Rollsigns from Toronto, ON
|This set of front and side linen rollsigns have 47 exposures. Through research, the versions shown here were found to be dated
around February 29, 1988. The front sign (left) is version "D-34". The side sign was originally version "D-33" but was altered to be
a version "D-34". Exposures that are red, yellow and black are the original design. From 1985 on, the TTC used only black for
regular service routes to save money. The blue exposures represent overnight service routes on their "Blue Night" network.
The side sign (right) has been enlarged two times the scale size of the front sign to enhance detail.
A YouTube video of the front rollsign (left) can be viewed below.

Davenport Garage covered the western area of downtown, and the west central area of Toronto. After
the bus garage closed, its routes were divided up primarily between Wilson and Eglinton garages.
