Transportation Mural by Scott Murphy

(check out a full set of in-progress photos)

This mural located at University and Fairview in St. Paul covers the past and future of transportation on University Avenue–the old street car lines and the coming light rail. It’s located next to the old Andy’s Garage (which has been vacant since they closed at the end of 2006) on a wall that used to have an old Uniroyal tire ad. The “Major Tire Co.” across the top is leftover from that original advertisement, and the sign with the phrase “The Tiger is Back” is a nod to the old tiger drawing in the ad.

The mural has some great detail, especially when you get up close.
