149 years ago, the noble horse drew Canada into the future.
The horse drawn street car may have evolved away…
… but bicycles are here to stay.
This part of the mural seems to celebrate our continuing growth, our institutions .
And our puzzling Canadian sense of humor!
This mural will continue to celebrate for 2 or 3 more posts!

From the 3-D dinosaur age to modern times, all on one wall. Makes one want to take up history, Canadian history 😀
So how are you Resa dear friend ? I expect you are getting excited as the days are getting short, almost time to see Jeep and Johnny again. Yay !
Big hug. Ralph xoxo ❤ #<

I like the Godzilla.
Impressive 150. Young country, way to go!
It’s very exciting!
How wonderful. Love the T-Rex with 3-D glasses. That’s my favorite. Fabulous.
I love it, too! It almost makes no sense in terms of the whole mural, but it is great nonsense!
Hey, Resa.. 😉
Horses, bikes, and dinosaurs. Well, apart from the dinosaur, it wasn’t all that long ago that horses ruled… So much has happened over the past century! 🙂
The last 100 years we went from horses to cars, from brooms to vacuums and of course from the abacus to the computer! LOL 🙂 xoxoxo
Still lot of dinosaurs living around us, they survive as journalists, politicians and lawyers… 😀 😀 😀
Wonderful captured… 🙂
Hahaha! 🙂 🙂 🙂 TY, LDN! 🙂
Every time I come here and see murals, I am astounded by what I see. Resa, Bless you for documenting history. What an important role you are playing!!! ❤
You are so kind, Amy! I do think I am doing this blog for posterity. It’s always great to see you here! ❤
