Andrew Gunn gives some background on the poppy mural by artist Andrew Lewis during a mural tour in St. Thomas, Ont. (Brent Lale/CTV News London) It’s a new, fun way to see the expanding art scene in St. Thomas.
Beginning this weekend, the Elgin County Railway Museum (ECRM) is now offering scooter and cycling tours the dozens of murals around the city.
Andrew Gunn Consulting (AGC) arranged a donation of $15,000 for the ECRM to purchase seven scooters, two- E-bikes and six bicycles.
“One of the quirks of St. Thomas is that the city was really built up along the railway line, so we really have a long downtown,” said Gunn, president of AGC. “The question is how to get people around to see the murals. Some people are willing to walk it other people maybe want something a little more fun and a little more active.” RELATED STORIES
