Craftsman Village Mural
This mural celebrates the Craftsman Village Historic District in Long Beach, CA. This neighborhood of mostly Craftsman-style homes had been quite run down, but recently residents have been working to improve the neighborhood and have received the "Historic District" designation from the City.

The mural presents the neighborhood as a place that is so attractive that it is visited by tourists. The mural depicts, in the center, a large travel poster for the whole neighborhood. Arranged on either side of the poster are a series of luggage stickers -- one for each street within the district. Each element depicts something relevant to that particular street, whether historic or contemporary.
