I spotted this mural while I was wandering around the backstreets of Sydney and I thought it was great. I know Ocean Wave Hotel did exist in Sydney but didn't stand the test of time and was demolished. I don't know, however, if it was exactly at the same place.

PS. After I had uploaded the picture, Sabine Krause, got so interested that she found an original photograph (link below) on the basis of which this mural was obviuosly painted. I didn't edit or process it, it is originally b/w, just added a frame. Thank you, dear Sabine for your effort and your inquiring mind. V.

Very interesting photo processing! ... in any case you managed to convey the spirit of the past tense.

This is brilliant! It doesn't look like a mural. Very well spotted Viola. I like it very much

: ))) like adele, i thought it was an edited picture and was prepared to write that i'm not so fond of this kind of "transformation back into a painting" ; ))). the period look of the people should have raised my suspicions. it's sydney after all, and you aren't a time traveller, are you? ; )))) hugs, sabine.

It's a very interesting mural giving a good idea of how Sydney did look like in the past.

Since the picture itself was not taken by you, I must say that I like the frame best.
And of course: I like S. Sabine K. too.
Cheers - A.

Intriguing bit of trompe-l'il in the sense of looking as though you created it from a photograph. Ah, but it IS a photograph of a period mural, which you captured seemlessly. And your simple framing treatment is just the right touch. Nicely done!
Compliments,
Steve
