The Little Current through Canada's 150 years, a Community Mural is presented in a time line from right to left, as a historic and geographic reference. The very most right side of the mural depicts the Anishinaabe migrating to the Island after the war of 1812. Next comes the logging industry, in the background appears Picnic Island and Red Mills logging facility. The Logging industry was a mainstay in Little Current from its inception in 1860 through the 1900's. This takes us to Down Town Little Current circa 1920, the road by the docks morphs into the water where at the center most point of the mural The Centennial Logo and Town of Little Current are honored. On the Left side The Hiawatha, Little Current's first car ferry. We come next to Little Current's famous 104 year old Swing Bridge depicted with the first train moving across its tracks to Goat Island, where we see the Goat Island Coal Docks. West of the coal docks is the Strawberry Island Light House. The Mural's finally is on the far left side and is in honor of Anishinaabe, depicted is a Thunder Bird rising with the sun rise with flames from the back, symbolizing the people of the three fires who were Manitoulin's first settlers.
To depict Little Currents history and culture Ryan chose a Graphic Novel type styling combined with a more simplistic style as to not overwhelm, the colors bold and vibrant. Details are minimized while outlines and form are maximized for ultimate visual impact. Engaging viewers young and old, the mural its self will withstand passing trends.
