Monday Mural - At the Museum

Another mural I spotted when we were on the way home from Dr J, after picking up some pieces of furniture when she moved housed in October. 
We took the river route home and I spotted the mural and had to ask Jose to turn around so I could go and photograph it 😊. 
It can be found on the walls of the Freshwater Bay Museum at 66 Victoria Avenue, Claremont.
The building was built in 1862 and originally functioned as a school. It later became a church, a boarding house for men and a police station, and only became a museum in 1975.
Sadly I haven't found out who painted the mural.

  3. Large-scale fully realistic murals are unusual. SO glad it hasn't been graffitied!

  4. These naive and very bucolic paintings of a bygone era, which make one think a little of customs officer Rousseau, are quite charming and soothing. Have a nice week.

  6. Obviously without the car, the scene looks at little Amish. It was a good find.
