'HONOURING ISLINGTON'S VOLUNTEER FIRE BRIGADE' Artist: John Kuna Year: 2007 Address: 4988 Dundas Street W Each winter in the 1940s and 50s, the fire brigade diverted water from Mimico Creek to flood Central Park. This created a huge skating rink just south of Dundas W. The mural design incorporates a boarded casement at the back of the building and appears as a serving window for the little hut. Volunteers once played dance music and served hot chocolate and treats from such a window.
