Signs can advertise a business, promote a cause or even tell you where to go and how to get there!

In fact, signs are the backdrop to our workaday lives. Some are “just the facts, m’am” others are eye-catching for their use of colour and design. Some signs can become so well known to us that it’s a sad day when they are dismantled or removed.

But fear not, this new exhibit is sure to bring back some memories. Our second floor temporary gallery area will display “Signs of the Times” – an exhibit featuring artifacts and signage of Comox Valley history from our permanent collection. You can expect to see the Gaiety Theatre sign and “Leung’s Fruits and Vegetables” among many others.
