Back to the Blair Arcade

Since the Blair Arcade murals seemed to be so well-received, I decided to add more.

  8. The gas lights now cost quite a bit to use so 2006 may be the end of an era. Perhaps someone will paint another mural with candles in the window dated 2007.

    Have a warm and happy day tomorrow, Kate.

  10. Zsolt72, Because my own name, Mura, means "wall" in some languages, I think I'm genetically predisposed to murals!

    Faye, I'll have to see if I can discover the artists. If I do, I'll post it.
