The Mural Tour -- Part 1

How many towns do you know that have commissioned twelve murals to commemorate local history?  Rawlins did exactly that.

Although this isn't the first mural you encounter when you enter town from the east, it's the perfect one to welcome you to the mural tour.  As you can guess from the train cars in the background, this one's located at the train depot.  The holes instead of faces for the conductor as well as the mother and child give visitors a chance to become part of the giant postcard.  Note that the attention to detail includes those black mounting corners that so many of us have used to put pictures and postcards into scrapbooks. 

Have you ever had your picture taken by a sign similar to this?
