The Ten Commandments.

Ten Commandments and Town Spirit Mural

Field review by the editors.

Bridgeport, Ohio

A granite tablet of the Ten Commandments stands in a small corner lot/park, with a mural painted on a two-story brick wall as a backdrop. The Ten Commandments are a familiar sight, but the mural is unique -- and for the size of its wall, sparsely populated. Beneath a large hand-painted "The Spirit of Bridgeport" are full-body portraits of a steelworker in an asbestos suit, a guy in jeans with a helmet and lamp on his head, and another guy in a suit handing a little girl a book labeled "Charles Dickens." The centerpiece of the mural is a vignette of an olde-timey undertaker posing next to his horse-drawn "Wilson Furniture and Funeral" hearse. The mural is painted on the side of the Wilson Furniture building.

Read this Charles Dickens, little girl.
