Another Islington Mural

This is yet another of the murals done in the Islington area of the city by John Kuna. This one was done in 2009 and is titled "The Pub With No Beer" and features a scene from the prohibition time (around 1928) showing empty pop bottles being loaded onto a truck outside the old Islington Hotel which stood near here at the time. Another super job by this artist!
Taking part in Monday Murals. Click here for more murals.

I agree about the artist and his murals. They are so graphic...the remind me of HDR photo effect. Wonderful stuff!
