Iconic Farm Mural of The Holland Marsh Gone For Ever… Bradford Ontario Canada

Taken on Friday Sept 10th 2016

I am very disappointed at the loss of the Art work. What is wrong with people? This was one of my favorites, it is devastating to see it gone… The mural was defaced and obscene images and words were spray painted on the wall.. So it was painted over. The Holland Marsh mural was painted in back in the 1990’s, Every day I strive to preserve the history of Bradford Ontario Canada and its heritage one picture at a time. Thank goodness I took a picture of the Mural earlier this summer. I would love to hear some of our Historians and Art Lover out there what you think about this.
