Echo Beach

Martha and The Muffins are a Canadian band.

Their main hit was “Echo Beach”, in the 80’s.

In 2014, Vogue Magazine pronounced Queen Street West the second  hippest street in the world.

Martha and the Muffins were part of the cultural evolution that made Queen St. so awesome.

It was music and all of the arts that flourished. Eventually graffiti & Street Art found its way here. I’m so thrilled to live on this street.

It’s amazing what I find painted on power boxes in the streets of Toronto.

Here’s Martha and the Muffins!

The White Squirrels

There are white squirrels in Trinity – Bellwoods Park.

Apparently they are not a breed, but more like albino squirrels.

They have created more white squirrels.

Toronto is so proud of these rare beauties …

That we have named a street after them.

I have not seen one, but I don’t have hours to sit quietly, in a Squirrel Zen State, with a bag of peanuts. Although, it’s on my “To do list”.

Strawberry Fox

I love this fox on a box!

Going around the box, end 1.

The fox is on the other side, but he hasn’t found the strawberries, yet.

End 2, of the box.

Birds on a Blue Box

It’s a very simple piece, and I adore it.

All of the birds are on a blue power box.

In no particular order!

The artist included pigeons. ♥️🖤

🎵 When the red red robin 🎶 come bop bop bobbin’ along 🎵

I was so happy when I found this!

Karmen Electrik

Found this beauty on an electrical box on Lakeshore W.

I fell in love!

Not only is she on an electric box,

…. she’s electric with flowers!

The piece below repeats on the front and back of the box.

The repeat is to the left of the part below. Don’t know why I didn’t get the whole backside.

Probably due to sheer excitement.

Below is one end. The other end is a continuation of the red, blue and yellow swoops behind the girl’s head. This can be seen in the last pic of the regular roll.

Jazz Jive Jitterbug

On a Bell Tel box is this fab tribute to Jazz.

Below is the front (east side) of the box as you walk up the street.

Let me spin you round, starting on the south side of the box, which is a female sax player. I adore the silhouette style.

Then, it’s around to the west side, and 3 more musicians, trumpet, singer and upright bass.

The north end is plain, with the artists signature. (shown at end of post)

Then it’s back to the east side, where the dancers are in color.
