Myer Mural Hall - Bourke Street

Dear V ... Here is another snippet of one of the paintings in the
Myer Mural Hall.  I was lucky enough to visit it during Melbourne's
Open House Weekend.  I believe bookings are necessary at other times.
The Murals are by Napier Waller. Amazingly he painted with his left
hand having lost his right arm in WW1. Gotta admire his determination
as well as his talent ... J.


  1. Wow. Impressive. I've never seen the Mural Hall. Must put it on my to-do list.

  2. I do admire him Joe, most people wouldn't be able to paint like this under normal circumstances, Napier Waller was a talented man!

  3. Will have to see if I can book when next in Melb. Great to see this Joe.

  4. Yes, that is truly amazing! When faced with such adversity I hope I can excel as well as this artist did.

  5. Amazing! I admire his Spirit.
