Scarborough Junction Mural Unveiling

Earlier this fall, we celebrated the official unveiling of the Scarborough Junction Mural on the St. Clair underpass (just east of Warden).

With the help of local historians Barbara Dickson, John Everest and Rick Schofield, a concept was developed to depict the history of the area: The south wall depicts the early development of the Scarboro Junction, and the north wall depicts the little known history of the women who worked at the GECO factory during WW2.

A special thank you to City staff at StArt Toronto who secured the talented artist Omen, and to Mural Routes for their overseeing of the entire project. Through the Underpass Program, we were able to make this area safe, walkable and beautiful.

It was a cold day for an outdoor ribbon cutting ceremony, but we were able to warm up inside the Warden Hilltop Community Centre, enjoy some refreshments and learn more about the area’s unique history from descendants of some of the GECO women.
