Chillicothe, IL 61523
Title of the artwork: “Rail Roading”
Artists: Arthur H. Lidov
My current employer gives us Good Friday off. So how do you think I spend the day? Oh you are right if you guessed that I drove around and took pictures of post offices. How did you know? Lucky guess or do you know me? Are you a stalker? Lucky the post offices were open.
This is Chillicothe, Illinois. I like the mural and I was really happy to see the old photographs in the bulletin display case. When the building was constructed it didn’t have the wheel-chair ramp in front. Also notice the two trees in front in the old photograph.
Have you visited this building? Did you know the name of the artist to mural? Please comment and share below.
Thanks for visiting
