Mural/Our World

Left side of mural on side of pharmacy, Jackson's Point

This mural is on the outside of a pharmacy that carries a huge variety of items very much the same way as a general store might.  The building it's painted on is quite old so may have been a general store at one time.

I wonder how long it takes to paint something this detailed...
And how long it lasts...

Amazing murals. The horses look like they are actually running down the street.

This is such a lovely mural with a nice sense of movement. I guess the quaint general stores of days gone by have evolved into mega stores like WalMart.

I had to look hard at the store front to see it not being the real thing as they did just a picture perfect job.

It's wonderful! Such detail, and it really takes you back to that earlier time! You ought to connect with Mondays Murals with this too....check out my blog for the link!

Great mural. We once lived in a small Iowa town with a real General Store. It had operated in the same location since the 19th Century and still had buggy hardware for sale, but I loved their meat market the best. Could only buy what they were cutting that day, unless I put in a special order.

That's a great mural! And what a wonderful drugstore/general store...I'm not much of a shopper but this one I'd definitely stop and buy.

This is a great mural. I'll bet this pharmacy would have made a wonderful general store.
