More murals

Here are more mural pictures from downtown Shreveport. Bossier has quite a few, but very different in character. I'll get around to getting more pictures soon.

Mr. Maggio (or his family) has this sign repainted every year. It is never faded, but always fresh and pristine. All of his delivery trucks have pictures of Italian scenes, including the Mona Lisa. I love them all. I love the sentiment of an immigrant who became an American success, never forgot his roots, and expresses his love for his adopted country. I love the fact that a mundane delivery truck becomes a work of art and the personality that decides that it is worth the extra expense to create a mobile visual feast.


  1. Aaah, that's better! I stopped by this morning, but Blogger (aka Blobber) wouldn't let me see the pics. I'm enjoying the mural tour!

  2. I love all these murals. I was amazed when I was in Steubenville OH last month. That town calls itself the "City of Murals". Google it. You will be surprised. Wish we had more of this out here and less graffiti.

  3. Thanks, Deb. I need to get out and take some more pictures.

    Annielf, will check out Steubenville...thanks for the tip!


Good to hear from you!
