43 Sherbrooke Street - "A Look at The Nook"
"A Look at the Nook": Sarah Collard (Collard Creations, 2011).
One of the nicest murals on Sherbrook Street. It celebrates The Nook, its most famous Greek-inspired diner, and was painted to curb graffiti.
Bill and Athina Paradisis, who can be seen standing arm in arm, own The Nook and The Nook and Cranny on Portage Avenue. They took over the business after their parents retired. The latter and their uncle are shown playing cards inside in the middle of the mural.
The background features the original Misericordia Hospital and the Single Mother's Birthing Hospital, which used to be located beside the restaurant.
The Alba Brothers, who were the original owners, are standing in front of the red car.
Overall, it is a fascinating historical look at a place that has been around for three decades.
