Monday Mural

I'm linking up at Monday Mural hosted by Oakland Daily Photo.

July 2017 - Midland ON

I posted some other murals from Midland last week. I also included the large one in this post.

This mural represents the Girl Guides of Canada. The pictures along the border of the mural outline tasks the Girl Guides did.







This general store was in operation from 1895 to 1950's.









This mural is painted on the back of the dealership and it shows the history of Bourgeois Motors throughout the years. It began as a garage and gas station and has evolved into the successful Ford Dealership.

 



This lighthouse was built in the 1900's to help guide ships on course from Giant's Tomb to the channel serving Midland Bay. Note the window in the top of the lighthouse is real.




Depicting the early years of a 20th Century Livery Stable and the introduction of the automobile when it started taking over traditional transportation.
