A new mural commissioned by the West End BIZ has been revealed on the side of a business on Sargent Avenue.
Called Second Stories, the mural highlights the earlier history when owning a business often meant living in the same building, above or sometimes behind the shop.
The mural is located on the shared wall of West End businesses Can-West Automotive and AMC Pawn.
“Since we were featuring second story windows, this location, sitting high above the parking lot, is perfect for providing excellent viewing. The people in the windows look like they are greeting their neighbours on the street,” said West End BIZ executive director Gloria Cardwell-Hoeppner.
Winnipeg artist Charlie Johnston designed and painted the mural.
