HomeTown Heroes In SanAngelo, Texas

In my 'New Hometown' of SanAngelo, Texas, I took a 'WalkAbout' in search of a HomeTown Hero and found this message....
So to the REAR ALLEY off Twohig Street I walked....
...and discovered these Murals dedicated to Hometown Heroes of World War II.
And this one....
....depicting the Workers and Supporters of the War Effort.
The Alley Gallery buildings, street and city utilities have been preserved as the were in the 1940's.
In my mind, the Artists and Historical Commission are Hometown Heroes, too!



I've included this photo to give you an idea of the scale of the murals.

 I'm pleased to share this post with My Town's Friday ShootOuts.

  2. Oh, this is wonderful! San Angelo is my husband's hometown. We haven't been in some time so these alley ways will be the thing to see on our next trip!

  3. They need to bring some of that art out of the alleys and into mainstream / main street America. They are wonderful!

  4. The murals are wonderful. It's really a shame they are not out more in the open, love the patriotic ones. Check out my sister Debs blog-she is a mural artist (The Paint Splash). Have a wonderful Memorial Day.
