Cellini Leathers, 2001 Magoffin
Corner of Magoffin and Eucalyptus. This was not the first mural to decorate both sides of the building, but I don’t have pictures of the previous one. I don’t know the name of the one in my images, or exactly when it was created, though I recall seeing a newspaper item about painting over the original mural being controversial in that neighborhood. This one has since been painted over as well, with a solid color, after a new business moved in (possibly in 2011, when I first noticed it). Deteriorating effects of weather and vandals are clearly visible.
Duplicated in “Magoffin” folder.
