I'm linking up at Monday Mural hosted by Oakland Daily Photo.
October 2016 - Toronto ON
A new mural being painted near us. These are drive by shots as we almost never walk over this way, The underpass is at a busy intersection that also has an entrance to the expressway.
I hope to get a complete photo when it is finished.

Lake Shore Blvd used to be home to the old motels but they have all been replaced by lofty condos. In the late 1950s clinging to Humber Bay, this strip of lakeside properties brimmed with confidence, promising the transitional comforts of television, in-ground (but naturally unheated) pools, and stunning views of a city that had yet to embrace fun.
There is a room key from the Lakeshore View Motel depicted.
Also the Blue Swallow.
Here is a photo from the 1980s that shows our condo, Palace Pier, in the background.
And looking the other way.
