Elena Cornaro Piscopia 340

In a sure sign that the Canada 150 hoopla is drawing to a close, the large 1867 numbers that have been sitting on the Confederation Centre plaza since the spring were loaded on a flatbed truck this morning to go on to their next assignment.

They were, disconcertingly for someone with my eyes, loaded on the truck in 1678 order, but perhaps this is because they’re being shipped to Padua for the Elena Cornaro Piscopia 340 celebrations.
