Death of an Icon 1 of 4

If it was an old pet we'd have to be thinking about putting it down.

The Big Pineapple is nothing if not tough and enduring, but now it's future seems unclear, certainly it's not there to promote the pineapple industry any longer, and there is a zoo attached and a market.

The land has been described as a "prime" development site, and I suppose it could be for those wishing to develop something demonstrably away from the beaten track.

When it was built it was on the highway of course, but that was in the words of the song, "yesterday, and yesterday's gone."

It was a big adventure going there in the old days. The big banana is pretty sad too.

Do come down here for a taste of cool weather.

It reminds me of a big apple along the freeway in southern Ontario.
