May 2017 - Toronto ON
I had just been on this block of Yonge St at College last week and never saw this new mural. I later found out that it was finished last November.
As I first saw it and it took my breath away.
So I zoomed in on parts of it.
Then as I walked on I realized that I hadn't seen the bottom portion so I crossed the street.
I found the following information here.
A 22-storey mural splashed with images of Gordon Lightfoot, Ronnie Hawkins and Oscar Peterson is taking appreciation for Yonge Street’s musical past to new heights.
Painted by artist Adrian Hayles with the help of a lift, will be visible from as far away as Bloor Street. They say it is meant to capture Yonge Street’s heyday in the ‘50s and ‘60s when music lovers flocked to Sam the Record Man’s famed store and stars like B.B. King and Muddy Waters played in clubs along the strip.
