Millwood Bridge
also known as the Leaside Bridge

I first visited this site late in March.  For one reason or another I didn’t get around to adding the photos that I took that day to this blog.  I was back yesterday on another grey day.  There are now leaves on the trees and the graffiti on the concrete has been painted over.

looking along the length of the bridge from just underneath it at one end.   Sloping ground in the picture, as are concrete supports and the metal steel girders supporting the road above.

graffiti on the yellow girders under the bridge.  The concrete supports at the end of the bridge are also visible and also covered with graffit.

There was also some graffiti and street art on the concrete supports at the north end of the bridge.  These have now been painted over.  The graffiti on the metal portions of the bridge remains.

Lovebot didn’t want to stick to the paint on the girder but he hung around long enough to get a picture.

Murals painted by Elicser in 2014, under the railway bridge on Bathurst St., just north of Dupont.

It is difficult to do justice to the paintings with a camera because of the structure of the bridge.   The following images are ones that I took yesterday.  Yes, there are many!
