Aurora Train Station on the Great Canadian Achievements Mural


Great Canadian Achievements

The Great Canadian Achievements mural, an informational piece of public art work, on the side of Larter building, seen from Yonge Street and Wellington Street in Aurora, was formally welcomed to the town with a ribbon cutting ceremony on November 23rd, 2001. The mural project was a community partnership with Larter and the Town of Aurora who invited businesses to sponsor an achievement of their choice, with a recognition marked on the wall.

The Great Canadian Achievements mural, sometimes called Canadian Moments Mural, was dedicated to the former Aurora Cllr Bob Hartwell. Seen on the photo above is the “Canadian Pacific Railway – the ‘Last Spike’ November 1885” art work with our own Aurora Train Station, “The Last Spike was the final and ceremonial railway spike driven into the Canadian Pacific Railway (CPR) track by company director Donald Smith on the morning of 7 November 1885.
