On the southwest corner of Danforth and Greenwood is a mural that extends over the lower storey of a number of brick buildings.   Back in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s Greenwood Ave. was home to quite a few brick works such as the John Price Brickyard, the Taylor Brickyard, and the Joseph Russell Brickyard.  You’ll notice that these are the same as the names on the signs above the mural.   Just south of this building is Greenwood Park, also once a brickyard.

 

looking across the street to a row of brick store fronts, two storeys high.  The bottom storey has been painted with a mural that has a yellow background.
