    Saw many of these years ago in a fine Mexican restaurant in San Diego. Fascinating. Never occurred to me to think

    " what an odd way to decorate a restaurant!" Don't recall any credits for Augustin Casasola.

    Here are Japanese photos denying "Rape of Nanking." https://nipponaikoku.livejournal.com/686.html

    Here are images we may be forgetting. https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-northern-ireland-25016713

    We have of course seen too many photos of horrors in Vietnam and Middle East.

    I only ever visited N Ireland once during the "troubles" and on my way back to the airport I was driven through a "loyalist" area. The murals on the gable ends of houses were amazing in terms of artistry. I never saw the murals on the "republican" areas directly with my naked eye but from TV pictures they looked equally well done. I often wondered who these amazing artists were. It would have been a real education to have watched their murals' execution from start to finish.

    Used to pass by an advertising billboard PAINTING business in a multiple story warehouse-like building next to Highway 101 in Oakland, California. San Francisco Chronicle profiled the place and painters in the 80s.

    I wonder if they're still in business? I wonder if technology (like inkjet) has terminated them?
