South Side Slopes mural

southside mural At 18th and Quarry on the South Side Slopes, there's a mural celebrating the South Side. According to the neighborhood association, it was painted by Richard Bach. It fits into the "hyper-realistic panorama" class of murals, showing people from all over the South Side hanging out, doing their thing, and generally having a good time. Not much more to say except that the mural, and perhaps the South Side itself, deserves bonus points for featuring a blacksmith (see far left of the pic) along with the more mundane shop types.
