This mural is painted on the wall of of the Coaling Tower, a large structure used to fill the tender of the steam locomotives with coal. Part of this large structure is shown on the right side of the picture. (On the mural the whole thing is shown, but it did not fit into the frame in my camera). The title of the painting is "A John St. Morning" by David A. Oram. On the left side of the painting is the Royal York Hotel, a Toronto landmark, still doing well. The Coaling Tower had to be moved during the development of the park, it was a major challenge for the moving company, they never moved such a heavy object before..

An excellent work of art, and it has a wonderful 3D feeling to it too. The train on the right is a new one to my eyes, I've never seen this kind before. Great that we can see the texture of the bricks its painted on in the right side of the image. A work well worth sharing with the world, thanks as always
