Dan Sawatsky is responsible for four of the murals around Transcona. “Old Regent Avenue” is a celebration of Transcona’s early history, showing Regent Avenue as it would have looked in the 1910’s. Along with gravel roads and wooden sidewalks, the scene encompasses early businesses such as Apollo Theatre, the Royal George Hotel, the Big 4 Clothing Store, Vivian Hotel, and Transcona Outfitters.
