The Daily Photoist: Office logo closer

Each weekday morning, we pick a recent image from the Torontoist Flickr Pool and feature it here on the site. It’s our way to give the many excellent photographers in our pool the attention they deserve!

Here lie the abandoned frozen remains of the Microsoft’s promotional Vista and Office ice house. Where, you ask? That’s right — dumped under Toronto’s very own Gardiner Expressway.
Toronto photographer Cliph discovered the cast-off remains by accident while out with some friends. (You can see the rest of his Remains of the Microsoft Ice House photoset here.)
This raises an obvious question: While, yeah, the ice house was made of ice and in theory should melt away as harmless water, is “under the Gardiner” an appropriate dump site for corporate promotional waste?
