SPACING FILMS: The Honest Ed’s bench in the Annex

Each week, we present Spacing Films — short docs based on articles that have previously appeared in Spacing magazine. The first four films will focus on our Hidden Gems feature.

The revelation that the Honest Ed’s bargain store will be sold in the near future reminded Spacing’s editors of the charming bench on Brunswick Ave. in the Annex. House owners Sibyl Fine and her husband placed the bench (originally bought at Honest Ed’s) on the edge of their property years ago and later dedicated the bench to Ed Mirvish after his death in 2007.
