I so enjoy it when a common surface becomes a canvas. This one reminds me of old blue and white tiles from the Victorian era. Thanks for contributing to Monday Mural.

Works well with that blue and green contrast.

Certainly livens up the bell box.

I really like this - reminds me of the way Lake Placid, FL paints all their trash cans - makes things SO much more interesting to look at! This is a nice piece of work!

This is a nice mural on an ugly Bell box. Funny to see his inspiration by the photo.

My first impression is that it seemed to be done by the same person as to the murals I did today. There's a similar style or so it seems to me. Nicely done.

You're very nostalgic, aren't you? Are Canadians in general?

It's nice to keep the memory of Eaton's alive. Still hard to believe they are closed.

@Irene - I do gravitate towards the nostalgic, so I associate with others who do as well

@RedPat - let me just iterate that this particular memory of Eaton's is before my time :)
