This weeks travel theme was such a good one, that I had to post a second entry. My first post was on wall that were built around cities for protection. But this post is a completely different take on walls. The Town of Sheffield in Tasmania came up with a clever idea in the 1980′s to reverse an economic decline and boost tourism. They came up with the idea of decorating the walls of various town buildings with large colorful murals, mainly depicting the history of the local pioneers. The first mural was so well received that they now have 50+/- spread all over town and Sheffield has become known as the “Town of Murals”. These are photos of just a few of them.
