Long Description:
This mural is much more interesting in person than in pictures, because you can have a lot of fun noticing the generous details - like the newspaper boy selling papers with a lead story about this very mural. The painting is not quite realistic enough to be trompe-l'oeil; it's meant to be artistic while being accurate enough to convey the history.
It fills the entire wall of the two story building facing the courtyard in front of the Cinema. Existing doors and windows of the building are incorporated into scenes of the mural.
