Oh My 06880 — Photo Challenge #23

Last week’s challenge was moderately difficult. It was the marsh grass between Gorham Island and the back of what used to be the “Pack Roads” shopping complex off Parker Harding Plaza. Lynn U. Miller took an intriguing-angle shot — and John McCarthy, Jacques Voris and Ralph Widmann nailed it. (Click here for that photo, and other guesses.)

Which brings us to this week’s photo challenge. As usual, it’s something we’ve often seen. Though we may never have really noticed it, Lynn U. Miller did.

    The mural at the library.

  2. I think it’s a bit of a tile from the historical tile mural at the library!

  3. Jane and Kim, you are both correct! You folks in the Kings Highway Historic District really know your stuff!

  4. It is in the mural at the library.

  5. All correct. there is a plaque at the library (which Lynn U. Miller also photographed), referring to the Robert Lambdin mural. It explains that the mural “dwelt in the foyer of the Saugatuck Elementary School” (now senior housing on Bridge Street) for 57 years. It was removed, restored and rehung in the library in 1992.

    The section of the mural that Lynn photographed reads: “Wings on which to soar to heaven/Friends with whom to work on earth” — referring, of course, to books.
