Oh, gorgeous! I love a good mural, and especially when it's got such attractive windows! Those are definitely whimsical :)

Ha the victorian mural had an impressionistic painter. Nice one to show us.

This one is very nice with the kissing couple in the middle.

That is a wonderful use of wall space! Love the work - very interesting!

Lovely. Thanks for sharing!

This is part of a charming village, that I hope still keeps its charm despite being a small part of the huge TO metropolis. The painting allows us to imagine if only for a bit how nice this may have looked in the 19th century. Of course, electricity and paved roads offer charms to us that were lacking then. Nice subject, lovely photos!

How much detail can be seen in this mural!

How delightful. I trust the guy checking his phone is making sure he got a good picture of it. I would hate to think they walked right by without enjoying.

It's good to see this charming mural again. I also like that you show the wall within the street context. The old meets new juxtaposition adds to the dreamy nostalgia of the scene. Thanks for participating in this week's Monday Mural.

oops, I had a feeling that Halcyon (or Redpat) had posted this before... just spreading the love.

RedPat said...

Good one Violet! I haven't posted it . Maybe Halcyon did - it's hard to keep track.

How nice! We need more murals to spruce up empty walls!

What an excellent find. Wonderful where alike is happening. And yes, the lessons look rather interesting.

Please have a good Tuesday.

I saw this two weeks ago as I was rushing to Carole's Cheesecake for brunch with friends! Made a mental note to come back to photograph it and lost the note... LOL!
