It's been almost five years since the last remains of Sam the Record Man
were removed from the corner of Yonge and Gould. In the time that's intervened, Ryerson's bright and shiny Student Learning Centre
has risen from the ashes. It was difficult to get excited about the building in the immediate aftermath of Sam's demise, but now that it's almost set to open and the iconic record shop sign has finally found a home
, it's possible to step back and appreciate this new addition to Yonge St.
