Location: 2340 and 2348 Kingston Road Scarborough
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.
