Culture Snap Scene: Dynevor Furniture

Meet Joe. Joe Terrone of Dynevor Furniture.

I met Joe while doing a photo walk of Eglinton Avenue West last year. Dynevor Furniture has been open for 75 years and Joe has been running it for the past 50 of them.

I love meeting real people who have helped build a neighbourhood and our city.

Joe is definitely one of them.

Be sure to visit Eglinton Ave W these days. The area is struggling under the aggressive construction work for the Crosstown LRT. Small businesses need our support in order to survive.

International Women’s Day was yesterday but really it should be everyday: I want to salute women around the world who are wide awake – fighting injustice and working for equal respect and opportunity for all. Thank you for your inspiration and for all that you do!
