Where to Find It
Hurricane Hazel struck Toronto on October 15, 1954. In her wake most of the Islington Golf Course and low-lying areas near Mimico Creek were flooded. The mural shows a group of volunteers arriving at the scene as a member of the Islington Fire Brigade helps moor their boat. Behind them members of the 48th Highlanders are clearing away the debris. Above, an army supply helicopter prepares to use the 9th fairway, then high ground, as a landing strip. From there supplies for the whole region were carried to the makeshift depot set up at Islington United Church visible on the horizon.
