It is painted on the rear exposures of two downtown stores and depicts the Daniels Oil gas and service station which was once located in downtown Pontiac near the Vermilion River at the corner of Water and Mill Streets. The mural recalls a time in the past when gas stations provided full service to their customers and were a place to gather all of the community news and gossip. This mural was painted by Diaz Sign Art in the summer of 2010.
Again, I was intrigued by the realism in this mural by the depth shown on this flat wall, the gas pumps and the light shining under the car where the mechanic is working.
