This mural is the heart of Scarborough – if you don’t know this mural than you have been living under a rock. For someone that lived in Scarborough for 44 years and still does, this mural means a lot.
As a young teenager I would take the RT with my friends and we would head downtown. The first time we saw the mural we were shocked that someone can do this with spray paint.
It’s been there since 1995, out of respect no one has vandalized it. From time to time I like to visit the mural to remind me where my roots came from.
