191-197 Toole in 2023, post 3 of 5: Northeast side

This is the third of five posts showing the five-sided building wedged into one of five corners at the intersection of 6th Avenue, Alameda Street, and Toole Avenue downtown. (Here's a closeup on Google Maps.)

There've been so many murals on these walls that we made a special page for the building that shows blog posts from over the years:

    Layers of murals: histories of a few walls

The last time I showed photos on this blog was the second in this series: 191-197 Toole in 2023, post 2 of 5: Northwest side.

This post shows the northeast side, along the railroad tracks. You can see it from the right spot along the new Barazza Parkway. There's also a route from the north end of 7th Avenue — behind Borderlands Brewing — but note that this may be railroad property and you could be trespassing if you walk this way.

For as long as I can remember, the northeaast wall has been covered with urban-style art. At the end of May, it still was:
Here are the left and right ends:

There's an aerial view of the mural and this side of the building on BG Boyd Photography's website Are You Ready.

During Rock the Spot, some artist(s) repainted the northeast wall. When I stood close to the mural during December, I couldn't tell what it was until I stood back and could see the whole thing. BG Boyd's has the aerial photo below, titled Rock The Wildcat, that shows not only the northeast wall but also the outline of the whole building:
Thanks for that photo, BG!
