Ocean Wave Hotel

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.

    Intriguing bit of trompe-l'œil 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,

    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.

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

    : ))) 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.

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