Monday Mural

April 1987 San Francisco CA

The first mural I ever saw.

UPDATE - several people wondered if the mural was still there. I had googled the image when I posted and it appeared to be still there.

When I investigated further I learned that this section of the city is known as North Beach. The mural is on the northwest corner of Broadway and Columbus and is the "Jazz Mural" by Bill Weber who has done many murals in S.F. This mural depicts the history of the area, specifically North beach and Chinatown, with several famous jazz musicians and San Francisco politicians.


  1. Wonderful. Hope it is still there!

  2. OMG, this is so cool. They look like ghosts of our musical past. The building practically disappears behind the images. I wonder if it's still there. Thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.

  3. Oh yes! I've got a few pictures of this one. Such an iconic mural.
    I believe it's still there. :)
