Murals in Montross, VA


About a week ago we took a road trip to Montross, Virginia.  I found these wonderful murals.  


At this website you can read all about them.











This is the coca-cola bottling plant.  I'm not sure if it's still in use as I came across this website where the building is for sale.

These murals truly enhance and spruce up the town. They look like giant postcards anyone would love to receive. The coke ad and the building look wonderfully historic … and perhaps the perfect venue for a future museum. :)

Signs painted on huge walls were very popular at one time. maybe the murals are bringing that style back.

Love that bird in particular.
The coke one strikes me as a little creepy. Woth seeing though.

I thought it all looked very professionally done and the link confirmed it. It certainly brightens up what must have formerly been a rather boring expanse of wall.

Good old Montross. I think some of David's ancestors lived there at one time.

Oh! I haven't seen these murals except for the Coca Cola plant. We own a home near there but it's leased out and we haven't been there in about 3 years. Spent a summer there once, plus plenty of weekends.
