King Street West of Spadina Road was once known as Belfast Row because the woollen mill factories that dotted the street were originally built and operated by migrants from Belfast, County Down. This Toronto historical fact explains why this location was selected, for at 548 King Street West is an Irish pub with Belfast in its name, Belfast Love. Although the area is now known as the Fashion District, it came by that name honestly for the contributions the Irish made in this part of the city. In Brandon’s painting we see Morrígan the Irish Wolf traversing down Belfast Row.
