Town Murals and Eagle

There are a few large murals in downtown Milan. This particular one shows a historical progression of the downtown street from Indian days up to present (which appears to be '80s, when they did this, because some of the clothes and things are quite dated and funny).

There is also a larger eagle perched atop the sign of a bank on the same downtown strip.

Super-literal town murals are not only funny, but they can be helpful when you're on a crash trip schedule. Beyond the dated depiction of an old man with a Super 8mm film camera, you can see the area probably offers a replica Liberty Bell, a Viking chainsaw carving, and a towering Viking statue.

Bell, Viking, and Mural

Traveling through some small towns we've never been through before we discovered a few items we deemed appropriate to stop and take our pictures with. The first of with looks to be a replica of the Liberty Bell. Second, there is a viking that appears to be carved out of wood. And lastly a large mural painted on the side of a building. Lots of attractions for this small town that appeared to have one whole city block to its name!
