I had never seen or heard of the

Chemainus Murals

prior to 2018.

We passed through Chemainus…

…stopping only long enough to capture

some images of the town’s 36-40 murals…

..the morning we left Vancouver Island

for Canada’s mainland.

The interesting thing about

the Murals is that they…

…not only tell the story of Chemainus,

many are also…

 

..integrated into the landscape,

as my final three images depict.

Around an hour drive from Vancouver Island’s

Victoria we came to the township of Chemainus,

famous for its Murals.

Some of these murals will follow in my

Photo Walk post.

 

These murals are not in any specific place,

that is a Mural Park, or similar.

Rather…

 

…they are on any wall…

 

…in the town.

Murals also…

 

 

…focussed on the pioneering days…

 

… when wind…

 

 

…steam…

…and manual labour was the way tasks were completed.

 

All murals, large or small, are…

…numbered so that visitors can

read the story of each mural.

I am assuming that is the reason for the numbers.

We barely had time to find our way

into town and back again

photographing murals as we found them.

Soon we were back on the coach to

catch our ferry across to the mainland.
