In The Way of Progress c.1922, by Phil and Jennifer Richards, July 1996
Located at: 2835 Kingston Road, at Eastville Road, Scarborough

About the mural:
This commemorative mural depicts passengers boarding a radial car at Stop 17 on the Toronto and York Radial Line, at the junction of St. Clair Avenue and Kingston Road. In the background is Scarborough High School, now R.H. King Academy, which was built in 1922 to accommodate a growing population. A horse-drawn wagon travels leisurely along St. Clair Avenue, while on Kingston Road; a gas-powered truck is temporarily halted by a symbol of Scarborough’s rural heritage. This mural was a Scarborough Bicentennial project, managed by Mural Routes and supported by the former City of Scarborough (now Toronto) and initiated by the Cliffcrest Community Association.
