Discover this spectacular 4400 square foot mural downtown on the alleyway walls between Talbot Street and the Moore Street parking lot. On the east wall, the orange and red colours feel hot, like sunrise into midday; on the west wall, the green and blue shades feel cool, comparable to late afternoon and sunset. The mechanical and digital forms that tower over the trees on both sides of the alley indicate human intervention into the natural environment, almost akin to alien spaceships.
Touted as Canada's largest railway mural, at an impressive 30ft. tall and 50ft. wide, this mural depicts the aspirations of many children who grew up surround by steam engines and the railway industry in St. Thomas.
MEDIAH’s bold and intricate linework represents two of St.Thomas’ landmarks. First, the lines represent the intersection of two historical roads which created St.Thomas’ location. Second, they represent the railway junctions and railway tracks that were built in the late 19th and early 20th century that ‘The Railway City’ is renowned for. The modern urban aesthetic of the artwork represents a progressive future as St. Thomas rebrands itself with a new identity that represents the City’s commitment to a progressive future for citizens and businesses alike.
This work celebrates the tradition of the apothecary from its roots of Lemon's Apothecary to today's eclectic Purely Wicked shop.

It is not only by chance that this is now the home of Purely Wicked, offering our community therapeutic healing for the mind-body and soul through their products and services.
The St. Thomas street railway opened in 1879 and spanned a 10-mile line through downtown St. Thomas. Many of the buildings seen in this mural are still standing today and can be seen along Talbot Street.
