This is another in a series of Heritage-themed Traffic Control Boxes by artist Tom Andrich, which are situated downtown along the north side of Portage Avenue. In 2011 the box was removed from the street because a larger box became required. The box was donated to a private citizen. The 2 photos shown here are of the box at its original location at Portage & Notre Dame.

Tom Andrich: "I did a Buffalo in the summer and in the opposite corner I did a Buffalo in the winter. When you look at from the corner you see a full face Buffalo when you're seeing it from the side you see a half a Buffalo, so it's always Buffalo. I had to really watch my image so no matter which way you look there's always Buffalo. A Buffalo represented the Prairies."
