Hey … it was nice outside today …. Sorta!  Nice enough anyway to take a drive … look at sites and ponder about this place called Lodi, California.  One of the “ponderings” was prompted by the street wall mural on the corner of Walnut and Schools Streets.

If you’ve followed any of my Lodi writings, you might have guessed by now that vineyards and wine are a major portion of the community’s economy and culture.  This mural depicts the early years of the industry … and the “working conditions” that surrounded those working in packing plants.  Please notice the sign … “no talking …”  Boy, have we come a long way … in both the working environment … and the WINE!

The sign and parking lanes on the street … is a side note … to give you an idea of the size of the mural.  There are a bunch of these murals in town … I’ve talked about some and other still remain to be discovered.

Love all the local artwork (murals)...how cool.  As per the "no talking" thing, I lived in a house for a while where you were to be seen & not heard, that's what that saying brings me back to.

Jack - Lodi seems to be someones pallet and what they have done gives interest to the community.  You just never know where you will come upon one of these murals.  Thanks for the blog.

Steve ... I've noticed that some of what looks like "advertising" on the backs of the School Street buildings are actually depictions of other businesses in bygone days!  Fascinating!
