Monsieur Hot Dog sign at Concordia

HISTORY

Monsieur Hotdog (Sherbrooke St W. and Monkland Ave) was a franchise operation close to Concordia University’s Loyola campus selling hotdogs, fries, and poutine. It closed in 2007 and is now a Dagwoods sandwich franchise.

There were two wall-mounted signs, one on the Sherbrooke side of the restaurant, the other on the Monkland side. Each sign comprised two panned and embossed acrylic sheets with interior fluorescent lighting. We estimate that the signs were fabricated in the 1970s. The MSP has one of the four sheets in its collection. In early 2010 this was put on permanent display in the CJ building.
