"Our Community At Sunset"

This is the mural on the west side of Royal York Rd opposite to the one I have been showing the last few weeks. It was done by the same artist, Emilia Jajus, in 2015 and shows some of the historically significant landmarks in the neighborhood. This first section of the 80 ft long mural shows James Gardens as it might have looked in 1908 when it was the garden of "Red Gables", the summer house of Frederick and Margaret James. I have shown you a lot of pics of James gardens which you can see by clicking the label below but this pic (HERE) from last year shows you a view looking up from the pond along the feeder stream that you can see in the mural. The gardens have been a public park since 1955 and are very popular for photo sessions.

What a calm feeling mural. Perfect of a busy underpass to settle the nerves of those passing by. Like the way the plants above the mural blend right into it.
