This mural project was led by Sara Wilde, who worked with 190 kids on this piece which depicts many historical elements of Ellice Avenue. Each element is inspired by a different story of the street. Cat Island in the centre represents a story from the 1880s about how the area would flood, forming an Island. Fort Ellice is also depicted, which is a Fort made by the Hudson’s Bay Company, where the street gets its name. There is also an old water-pump which used to stand in the area, St. Matthews church, and different modes of transportation that once existed in the neighbourhood.
