I am thrilled to announce that Scarborough Southwest’s latest mural project has begun. I have secured funding through the City’s underpass revitalization program to be dedicated to the underpass on St. Clair Avenue West, just east of Warden Avenue, and this summer you can expect to see colour enhancing these dreary walls.
With the help of local historians, Barbara Dickson, Rick Schofield and John Everest, the artist is creating a visual representation of the area’s unique history. Did you know that this neighbourhood is called the Scarborough Junction? The area developed after a second rail line was built in the late 1800s with a commercial hub of a few hotels and Everest & Sons’ General store (originally Bell’s) and a residential area to follow.
