Monday Mural - Foley Coffee Shop


Foley, Alabama

A scene from maybe what...sixty years ago?
These are the kind of murals that I like.
How about you?

  5. I like a good historic mural, but I like the modern ones too. My favorite is still the black & white of the kid with the slingshot in Sheboygan!

  6. I think a splendid addition to that mural would be Sinbad in the foreground eyeing those doggies. We don't see enough of Sinbad.

  8. Me too! This is a depiction of simpler times. I wonder if was really that wonderful back then, though. Well, I guess we like to think so.

  10. I could almost see the people getting into the train.
    Have you noticed the lady in yellow spotted you? ;-)

  11. It's so realistic that I'd probably walk up to the window and try to buy a ticket. And then wonder why the service is so poor. Thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.

  12. Yes, I like this style too. Reminds me of a mural of about this same vintage of a family picking oranges in old Orange County in the Fullerton post office. I have a photo of it somewhere.

  13. it's very down to earth and if it's a coffee shop then I'd be in for a mug of caffeine too, for sure. It's a very good mural
