The unique “double” mural, painted on facing walls by Phillip Woolf, depicts two eras in the life of Spooner’s Garage. Built in 1926 and rebuilt in 1947, the garage was located on the south side of Kingston Road in Cliffside Village. Owner Art Spooner kept the business alive during the Depression of the 1930s by offering a variety of services such as driving lessons, a restaurant and a 24-hour towing service. For a few years a tame bear kept on the property was a popular local attraction.
This mural was painted in 1992 as part of the original Heritage Trail; it was restored in 2017 by Blinc Studios.
