North 4th Avenue - Part Last

These are a few pictures of things that brighten up the North 4th Avenue area. This door is next to this Guatemalan restaurant. I don't know where it leads, but I like it. A mural done by some local artists as part of the underpass opening ceremony. It is in a plaza in mid-district. This silkscreen was in a store window. We Haul is a couple of guys with a moving truck. I'm sorry for the poor quality of the picture. I didn't want to tempt death by standing in the middle of East 6th St. It is very busy and no one will stop for a codger with a camera. Click to enlarge. There is a bus stop next to the trash container in the middle of the building. In the 1970s I used to catch the No. 3 bus at this corner to go home. The building was an auto parts store in those days. Now it is a furniture restoration shop. Things in this blog represented to be fact, may or may not actually be true. The writer is frequently wrong, sometimes just full of it, but always judgmental and cranky

It's not that bad! When you enlarge it you can see the detail quite well.

I like the mural, especially the dude thinking about Buddha and the two women thinking about each other.

Thank you for this great tour of colorful Hooterville. Love the blue door so much. Wow.

So now I have other images of where you live to keep in mind. Usually I think of the weeds in the middle of the highway. These pics are far nicer.
