Murals
« on: July 19, 2021, 10:27:22 AM »
Back in the BamaRide days, there was a section of photography dedicated to those murals we encounter while riding.  I'd like to bring back that section because in addition to the old "ghost signs" from previous advertisements, I seem to be noticing more and more new murals coming up as a matter of civic pride.

I noticed this while stopping for a break in Rockford in Coosa County.





I'm assuming this was the side of the realty company so prominently featured, but I do like the local landmarks painted inside the letters as a nice touch.
Most of all, it's nice to see "Fred, the town dog" honored.  Every dog get his day, I suppose.

There are a handful of murals in downtown Wetumpka, but this one not only incorporates the product of the store, but also gives a bit of history since Wetumpka sits on the site of a rare above ground impact crater.

Near the courthouse square in Ashland



Admittedly, it's more advertisement than mural but I like any wall art on a building!
