News Clip: Gordon Price sold! Mural destroyed!

Imagine my shock.

From GlobalBC News:

07-17-muralEDMONTON – A piece of Whyte Avenue history was lost earlier this week when a 30-year-old mural was accidentally sandblasted away.

The mural was painted by Edmonton artist Toti and featured three musicians – fitting for its location outside of the Gordon Price music store.

When Gordon Price was sold, later owners made sure to keep the mural intact.

The current owner had no idea it was painted by an Edmonton artist and had historical significance to Whyte Avenue.

No relation – but still, just for the record, I wouldn’t have overpainted the mural even if I hadn’t been sold.
