March 2017 - Bakersfield CA
I posted some other murals within a post about Bakersfield. But I kept these for a Monday post because I thought they were very special.
Merle Haggard and Buck Owens sing The Streets of Bakersfield. It so happens they both married the same woman, at different times!
And the Rolling Stones mention Bakersfield in this song, Far Away Eyes.
Done by Thomas (Zak) Zachery, from Bakersfield on a restaurant The Mark. They are on several sides of the building.
Love the red carpet!
This landmark drinking establishment was founded in 1940, originally as Oscar’s Alley Cat, and still pours drinks well into the evening, with no shortage of customers.
Located on Wall Street, which is actually an alley in downtown, Guthrie’s Alley Cat can’t be seen from any of the navigable roads in town.
Tony Saldano was the local artist for this one.
