...it was another mural. Say what? Here's the story.
Back on July 10th, I posted a photo of the mostly-blank wall below, at 1016 South 6th Avenue (across the street from 1001 S. 6th):
Arizona Historical Society. She'd been studying old Tucson murals and thought she might have photos of an earlier mural on the same building. Here are the photos she sent me:
So, it looks as if, 12 years ago, the mural here was of Emiliano Zapata, painted by Luis Gustavo Mena. Sometime since then, another mural — the one peeking out around the edges of the solid paint — replaced the Zapata mural. And, after that, the mural was painted over to leave the mostly-blank wall. Or something like that!
