[Map] Start your walk at the corner of Richmond and Kirkwood. This beautiful courtyard is just south of Richmond. Artist: Shaun McInnis.
[Map] Walking west, this is on a pub at the corner of Tweedsmuir that has covered half of it up by an awning. Artist: S.Sammon.
A few doors further on, this mural symbolises a band playing at the annual WestFest; the large image is of the first artist to sing at the first WestFest. The detail at bottom right is a joke on an employee of the body shop that then occupied the site who took very frequent absences. Blocked by construction almost since it was painted, then defaced by a dumpster, it is now defaced by privately owned signs and parking meters of Gilad Parking. Artist: Shaun McInnis.
Athlone just north of Richmond on a closed delivery door. Shaun takes his own photos of people for his murals - this is a friend. Artist: Shaun McInnis.
Athlone just south of Richmond. Originally the sign was a banner being towed by the biplane but it was replaced by a new owner. Under the bench is a small flower that the artist painted for a young child passing by. Artist: Shaun McInnis.
325 Richmond. The left car is real, the others painted. The layout is designed to cover all the wall that could be reached by a spray can. Only the door at the top of the fire escape and the top right windows are real. Artist: Shaun McInnis.
Details hidden by the car, all painted except the fire escape.
Walk south on Churchill to Byron. Winston, of course! Artist: Shaun McInnis.
369 Richmond. At the left is a magnificent view of the 1916 destruction by fire of the parliament buildings, with Ottawa firefighters on the scene and a firefighting Dalmation who was trained to chase away other dogs that might spook the horses. Two former fire chiefs of Ottawa follow, then a modern fire truck and images typical of modern firefighting. Artist: Shaun McInnis.
The ScotiaBank at 388 Richmond. The artist's nephew is shown daydreaming, his mind in the clouds, with images of his dreams: championship skateboarding, mountain climbing, drag racing, soaring free as an eagle, finally retiring in the sunset. Of course, the bank hopes to facilitate such dreams. Artist: Shaun McInnis.
