The Great Wall, Point Pleasant Beach

 I have lived in this area my entire life.
The first time I saw this mural was just a few months ago, but it has been here most of my life.
It is The Great Wall of Point Pleasant, depicting life in this tiny little seaside town. 
These are the stores that lined the streets, the cars are from the time...
This mural is at the train station and welcomes visitors as they arrive to town.

I shared this mural once before but it has recently been painstakingly restored.
All of the work was done by hand by the Historical Preservation Commission. 












It had been restored in 2007 and they just finished it again on October 15th.
Everything is exactly as it was...every stroke of the brush, every color.

You should take a look at my first post to enjoy the improvement of this mural.
Those pictures can be found here.

  6. Wow a lot of work but it is so great that they are keeping it up. Isn't it something that things can be so close to us and we don't see them.
