Another new pair of murals painted under a bridge.
This time, they’re close to Warden subway station.
The north side of the underpass
The north side of the underpass is dedicated to the woman who worked filling fuses for the General Engineering Company (Canada) Ltd., a WW2 munitions plant that was located nearby. More about the history of GECO.
The south side of the underpass
The south side portrays the establishment of Scarborough Junction in 1873. This was when a second rail line and commercial hub was built in the area.
The murals were painted by Montreal-based street artist Omen. They are also the result of a collaboration between the city-led art program StreetARToronto, not-for-profit arts organization Mural Routes, local historians and city councillor Michelle Berardinetti.
