Graffiti in the Annex

Went to a Randolph Theatre production of Mary Poppins, loved it by the way, and since we had some time to kill we walked the alleys around the Annex area of Toronto and checked out the graffiti murals. Some were a blast from the past as I remember seeing some of these during the old Zombie Walk days when the left from the pit in Trinity Bellwoods Park.

There are so many named neighbourhoods in Toronto that I have a hard time keeping them straight. Annex is north of the University of Toronto between Dupont and Bloor to the north and south, and between Bathurst and Avenue Roads to the west and east. Of course the area was also famous as the home to Honest Ed's discount store, home to tacky signs and Christmas turkey giveaways, at the corner of Bloor and Bathurst Streets. The store is gone and right now a big hole is being completed for the soon to be constructed Mirvish Village a mix of residential and retail units.
