Monday Mural

 I'm linking up at Monday Mural

August 2020 - Toronto ON

Near Kensington Market at Alexandra Park on Cameron St. Painted in 2005.

This mural was created to honour the community work of Sonny Atkinson who was a long-time resident of the Alexandra Park community.

Sonny dedicated his time to making this neighbourhood a better, safer place by settling disputes, improving street lighting and breaking down unnecessary walls in the community.

He was also instrumental in making the Alexandra Park housing project into a tenant-run co-op. The Atkinson co-op was named after Sonny Atkinson for his contributions to the community.

Also found on this trek was this one by Sweetman.

On the side of Maker pizza.

As I researched the mural above, on a street I had never walked up, I realized that I had other murals from the corner of Queen and Cameron.

I have photos in 2013 and 2015.

And along the side is this by Tom Dean. This photo taken August 2020.


  1. ...evercy community needs a Sonny Atkinson!

  2. The Cameron House seems to change their murals often.
    Wonderful to have people like Sonny in our communities, we need more of them to make our world a better place.
    Thanks for contributing to Monday Murals Jackie.

  3. Sonny Atkinson sure broke down walls. What a bold statement.
