It’s good to see the ‘Hug Me!’ tree is still on Queen Street!
If you look closely in the background of the above photo, you can spot the reason I was exploring this section of Queen St West (near Soho St). Along the wall by the parking lot is a new mural.
below: Floating man, floating down the river with an photo from the past clutched in his hand. “Tona as Marty McFly Disappearing Photos” by Elicser Elliott. It is another of the Love Letter to the Great Lakes project murals.
There were two other Love Letter murals that I came here to find.
below: If you look up as you walk along Queen Street West you might catch a glimpse of this mural by JAZ (Franco Fasoli). Arms, or tentacles, seem to be reaching out of the water and strangling the fish.
below: The third mural is around the corner from the other two, on Bulwer Street. It’s a large portrait of David Suzuki painted by Kevin Ledo. The blue shapes on the right are outlines of fish (atlantic salmon apparently) but I cut their tails off when I took the picture.
below: I haven’t walked along Bulwer St for a while so it was nice to see that this (unsigned?) mural is still there even though someone has spray painted some words on it.
below: One last little find on Bulwer, a circuit board stikman
