Sketch of CNB Building



This mini-mural drawing adorns a wall on the lower level of the historic Reed Opera House. It is of the historic 1880 Capital National Bank Building which I posted previously. The interesting thing is that is shows the original street-level front which unfortunately was 'modernized'. Some interesting history of the building is provided by the Salem Public Library.

This is such a beautifull mural! If it was here someone will put some grafitty there too :(

Nice! It serves a double purpose: it adorns the opera house and is also a historic reminder.

I like the variation of all your photos, Jill! They take me by surprise. Love it!

Love the juxtaposition of the rough wall and the beautiful design.
