What do you reckon?
This week a pair of iconic Dundas Street West landmarks are getting a spring-cleaning.

Dundas West's iconic boxing gloves at Bloor Street Boxing & Fitness are solid red again. Harsh winters and UV rays had taken it's toll. Chipping paint and uneven colors had plagued the gloves for a number of years.
Painters from Fine Line Painting spent last week sanding and re-priming the gloves. If you were in the area this weekend you would have seen they stood a dull-grey as the primer was set, but work began yesterday to get them back to their glorified red.
What else deserves a new coat of paint in the city?
Boxing gloves just don't look the same when they aren't red:
Why are all boxing gloves red anyway? Is it to hide the blood?
They have always reminded me of the two guardian sphinx from the Never Ending Story, and though I've never been inside Bloor Street Boxing & Fitness, I fear I would have to dive through the doors or risk getting shot by blue lasers.
