Mural seen at the corner of Highways 10 and 4, Markdale, Ontario

Many Ontario towns are prowd of their railway heritage.

Seeing an image like that you can't help but to think "was that a better time?" Very nice.

Wow, that is a fabulous mural. At first I thought it was one of your photos that you had treated with texture!

Now that's a nice mural. It is something that a city can be proud of! I sure wish we could return to rail travel in this country!

Such a lovely mural, great shot.

Interesting to see a nostalgically realistic mural. Your fellow Ontario blogger in Toronto often shows very brightly colored murals in contemporary styles. Maybe it is the difference between city and country.

An exceptional mural - very realistic. I'm sure it must have been based on a photograph so it's now gone full-circle.

What a beautyful mural! Railway is part of history, it's great to see such tributes.

This mural is really beautiful and I can only imagine what railroads meant for the history of many towns there...
God bless you!

Railways played an important role in Canadian history. I almost feel as if I could walk right into this mural scene.
