Beyond the bridge is bucolic imagery of the area.

Many renditions of this type of home is still found in well kept order in this area. It is dark in the underpass, so they have these lights to help us see. I thought the way the capture of the light mixing with the tree is interesting.

Playing beside the house, and peeking around a tree are 2 children. The tree is on a corner of the underpass. the boy is on one side.

It’s a nostalgic mural of the Kingsway Royal York area, in an underpass.

Let me back up to the beginning. It starts with a park.

This mural is not quite 3 years old, and already the rain run-off has left its marks.

The park is at the entrance to the tunnel.

When we enter the tunnel, there is a street with a theater,

My fave image from a very long mural.

However, let’s begin at the beginning, from left to right.
