Downtown Artwork

A new mural has been put in place in downtown Terrell.  It's a tribute to Terrell's history as a training base for British fighter pilots during WWII.  Painted by members of the Northeast Texas Fine Art Alliance.  The mural is located on the corner of Moore and Frances.

A few more Skywatch Friday sites can be found here.

I like this very much. I didn't know that Terrell had been a training base for British pilots. That's strange considering so many of our pilots and fliers were in England!

Jim, this is very special. I believe all of Terrell must be excited to have this wonderful artwork for one and all to see. What a tribute to those pilots and their trainers!

Thanks for enjoying my NCAA March Madness posts. I did have a memorable time and took a plethora of photographs. Pretty soon I'll take a break in posting them, though. I don't want folks to get tired of my blog--know what I mean? That doesn't mean that I won't pepper the blog with them, now and then. Bye!
