This may be my favourite of the murals that I saw in the tour of the Islington Murals of a few weeks ago. Titled "Honouring Islington's Volunteer Fire Brigade" and painted by John Kuna (he did most of the murals) in 2007, this one shows some of the activities the firemen performed for the community when not fighting fires. In winter they would dam the Mimico Creek (which I showed last week) and create a skating rink complete with a snack bar to feed the happy skaters. You can see the Mongomery's Inn in the background. I love the rich colours in this one and since it is supposed to be +33˚C here today it's nice to see some snow!
