Yet Another Islington Mural

Another of the Islington neighbourhood murals by artist John Kuna, this one was done in 2009 and is titled "Faith of Our Fathers 2" since it replaces the first mural of that name. It shows some of the history of the Islington United Church from the days of ministers travelling around to small hamlets by horseback to the construction of the first church on Dundas St W.  The congregation outgrew this location and moved around the corner and the original is now a pub.

I wish I could paint...
Did you know that there's an Islington neighbourhood very close to Hackney? ;-)

This is really quite incredible. It would be incredible in a museum but on a wall? Fantastic. Love the photo of the construction and all the people and the colorful costumes.
