Yep,,, that's the one! At the northwest corner of Broadway and Columbus Avenue, the gateway to North Beach! Bill Weber and Tony Klaas, the artists, are depicted in the lower left corner, although you can't really see them in my picture -- The main focus is on Benny Goodman playing the clarinet & Oscar Peterson on the bass. Telegraph Hill rises on the top right center & Italian fishing boats fill the lower right. A bit of SFO History all told on 3 Stories of Wall!

Man, that's so cool. I should've taken a walk over there when I was in SF a few months ago, but I didn't . However, I'm leaving tomorrow for SF and first thing Thursday morning, I'm walking there with camera in hand. Thanks for posting!

If you make it over to the Mission District, check out the Women's Building at 3543 18th Street at Lapidge Street... it'll blow your mind! Here is a small bit of that mural...

Will do! Thanks, x2cme!

Thanks for holding the fort down, x2cme!

This was one of the highlights of my trip - an original BANKSY siting (refer to my post a page back or so).

I didn't take these photos, but I found them online and thought they were worth sharing.

This is in San Francisco's Chinatown:


This is from Paris (I think it's beautiful):


This is from New York:


This one is just brilliant:
