One of the smaller murals in Islington celebrating the heritage of Etobicoke in outdoor art.
Designed and painted by John Kuna in 2007, it was painted in the style reminiscent of old coloured postcards and turn of the century paintings.
The plaque beside the mural explains that from 1917 to 1931 the old Guelph Radial Line ran behind this site (where the mural is painted). Forerunners of today's electric streetcars, radial trains were so named because they 'radiated' from the city centre outwards to neighbouring towns and villages.
(there is also a hint of the murals on yesterday's bridge leading into Islington)
