  1. Who knew walls could be windows into a town’s history?

    Have you been to Philadelphia? We have murals all over the city! Lots o’ doors, too. 🙂

      Yes we were there in 2012…wow, I can’t believe that was 7 years ago already. I remember seeing a few nice murals. Elfreth’s Alley, Boathouse Row, and the Reading Terminal Market were the standouts I remember most from that trip. We’ll eventually go back because there’s lots we didn’t get to see.

  4. We have something similar in our town, Norm. I don’t know who the artist is, but I’m glad the local council has never decided to class it as graffiti and remove it. I’m hoping that one day, Banksy will leave some of his artwork on our garage wall.
    Merry Christmas.

      Thanks Hugh. Yes this is art, not graffiti and frankly with very few exceptions I think it beautifies any area where it goes up.
      Very Merry Christmas to you and yours my friend, and much health and happiness for 2020 🙂

  5. It was an excellent outcome. We have some similar pieces of art along the Naperville river walk. I’ll have to find my photos of them and share. Happy mid-week, Norm.

  8. A good wall mural like these affects me as much as walking into an established art museum. Applause to the artists and thank you for sharing. 🙂
