"Mimico Creek, ca 1920" Mural by John Kuna

No Thumbnail
Mimico Creek was a key factor in attracting settlers to the Islington area, as was Dundas Street itself. Islington Avenue did not extend south of Dundas until around 1962. Before that time, and before the Shell station was built on the north side of Dundas at Islington, artists gathered on the steps of
T. Montgomery's Inn to paint the glorious fall colours.

In this 17' x 55' mural we see Mimico Creek ca. 1920, winding through the valley,
framed by sumac, spruce and pine, with the house then below Montgomery's Inn shown at right.
