Moline, IL 61265
Title of the artwork: “Ploughshare Manufacturing”
Plough making must have been a booming business in Moline back in the 30’s. I’ve never thought about making plough’s but there you go.
The mural in this one was difficult to photograph because it is so high up on wall. I tried several times to get close up of the signature right above the clock. Every time I tried the photo came out blurry. It just would not focus for some reason. Eventually I got one or two that seem to be satisfactory. Sometimes that’s how it goes.
How about that pay phone booth? At least that’s what it looks like to me. Can anyone confirm is this was indeed a payphone booth?
This was a visit back in June of 2015. I’m still working through my backlog of photos.
What do you like about this mural? Please comment and share below.
