This morning while walking in midtown Toronto[that's Canada:)]I saw a half
demolished older(built circa pre-ww2)public/elementary school. Perched
high up(school lot was cramped so they apparently had several floors)was
the exposed upper floor(6 stories up?)with at least two or more
corridor(?)student murals. They looked depressingly beautifull in the
high pressure clear sunlight of a cool fall morning. How I wish I could
have photographed them in colour! Talking about preserving for future
generations school/student art(public art)!
