I have some real estate holdings in the Toronto area, and ventured around the suburbs to see some history. It's quite a contrast to the big box stores and Chinese malls further south.

The biggest mural in Europe can be found in my city, about 150x37 meters in size. You can see a part of it on this picture:



There are some other murals in my town, like this one. An advertisement for sigars from 1920
