It’s kind of amazing that this 30-year-old mural is still around. Painted by Chris Baird with the support of Compas and First Grand Avenue State Bank in 1978, it’s on the side of the old Bober Drug Store on Grand Avenue, which is now home to Palm Beach Tan. Most murals don’t last that long, whether through deterioration, vandalism, simply being painted over or buildings being torn down. It’s cool to see that such an old mural capturing an even older era of St. Paul is still around.
