The continuing saga at Toole & 6th

As you've seen on this blog (most recently in the February 27th post), the building at the northwest corner of 6th & Toole Avenues changes a lot as time goes on... it's probably the building we've shown the most over the five-plus years since Randy started this blog. (The first time was May 25, 2009: Train, trolley, and a three-eyed alien.)

For today, here are two views from the corner — looking northwest, then north — on November 6, 2011:

Happy Leap Year Day! Please stay tuned for the next four years... we'll try to keep you up to date (sort of!) on this always-surprising corner canvas.

Update (March 1, 2012): I just heard the story of the mural with the yellow background in the second photo. The man with the gloves is O.J. Simpson, and the artist who painted it is Dave Sayre. (As always, you can click on the photo for a larger view.) Thanks to James — I didn't get his last name — for the info. And see tomorrow's post (March 2) for more about this wall.
