About the Banner

Fraser Wilson painted our banner image– “a view of a worker’s waterfront”– on the walls of the Pender Auditorium in 1947. After the building was sold, and plans were made to paint over it, the mural was moved, restored, and rededicated at the opening of the new Maritime Labour Auditorium in 1988. You can learn more about the mural by visiting the Martime Labour Centre website.

We would like to thank Shannon Solby at the Maritime Labour Centre for providing us with access to the mural and Les Gallus for helping us locate digital files of Wilson’s work.
