First Look: New Mural Next To Silver Lake’s Local

After breakfast at Local on Sunset this morning, my wife Susan and I checked out a new mural next door to the restaurant, now finished (hat tip to the blogs of Jesus Sanchez and Kathy McDonald) that  I first glimpsed in its beginning stages earlier this month. The vintage cityscapes are from Silver Lake artist Nicky Gagliarducci who bridged the past with the present by inserting multiple images of the community’s seemingly omnipresent Walking Man, also known as Dr. Marc Abrams, who as fate would have it I fauxtographed striding on Sunset across from Tacos Delta. Below is a seven-frame pano of the finished awesomeness (clickably ginormifiable):
