In August I posted a blog about the murals that were painted on the many walls in Carleton Place. Today, thanks to the power of news archives I found the chaps name by chance. His name was Theodore/Theodor Jensen who was born in Denmark. He should also not be confused with the famous UK artist.
Theordore/Theodor Jensen painted all the outdoor scenes the walls of the Mississippi and Queen’s Hotel. In the Mississippi Hotel lobby, one in particular showed the proprietor Watty McIlquham in his duck hide at McCullochs Big Mud Lake in the Lanark Highlands.
