Tuesday in Hollister #2: Where is this?

You can find several spectacular murals in downtown Hollister. Probably the most well-known mural is on the side of Johnny's Bar and Grill in Wentz Alley.

How about this inspiring mural? What building does it grace?

Don't know where it is, yet? Here's a hint: Across the street is a Mexican bakery.

If you still don't know, scramble the letters: rteslohli puers

Any "oldtimers" out there? I've got some questions for you: What business first used that building? What took over after that business moved to the south side of town? I don't know the answers, but I really would like to know.

Does anyone know when this mural was painted, and who painted it? 


  1. I love those painted murals on public buildings. The are interesting and fun. It takes a bit of talent to create something that large and keep it in scale.
    Have fun.

  2. So true, Manzanita. I don't have the talent to draw but I can color within the lines. For a bit I thought I could offer my services to do that for a muralist, but then I wouldn't be able to do the nuances of light. Oh well, I can enjoy looking at them. I'm glad we have a few around town.
