"Honours Islington's Volunteer Fire Brigade" by John Kuna, 2007
Is located on the east wall of Edwards Builders' Hardware at 4988 Dundas,
this mural honours Islington's volunteer firemen who were once based in this block and who,
each winter back in the 1940s, used to dam Mimico Creek below Montgomery's Inn
to create a much used and loved skating rink.
The design ingeniously incorporates a boarded window in the back of the building,
using it as the serving window for the little hut from which volunteers played dance music
and served hot chocolate and other delights.
The finished work is a photo-realistic mural 41' wide and 23' high.
