Queen St West Stroll

I'm heading off for a vacation tomorrow but am pre-posting for a couple of weeks and I am going to start off today with a series of pics I took a week ago while on a stroll along Queen St West in the stretch between Shaw St & Dufferin. This area used to be fairly run-down but as often happens, artists moved in, then galleries, small restaurants & shops and then the rents started to go up! There are still a lot of galleries in the area and this mural is found in the courtyard at the front of 2 of them. I could find no artist credit but I really like it!

Have a great vacation, PedPat. Know that I am extremely jealous that you are somewhere different soaking up the atmosphere. ;))
