52 St. Anne's Road
Artwork by Chris R. Easton (1999).
I absolutely love this mural surrounding Mike's General Store. This is the place to visit if you are looking for vintage stuff like toys, advertising signs, memorabilia, and unique collectibles. I drive by it very often and it is impossible to miss.
Different eras meet. The 1950s and 60s at the front, then the early 20th century to the side. Charlie Chaplin welcomes you at the door, while Steve McQueen invites you to watch one of his most famous movies.
Look carefully at the back to see the Zeppelin, the famous rigid airship named after the German Count Ferdinand von Zeppelin who pioneered rigid airship development at the beginning of the 20th century.
This mural is a museum in itself.
I wasn't able to find information on Chris R. Easton. Can you help?
