Phone Company Mural of Telephone Parts

This was easy to find as it is right next to the sidewalk and at eye level. The artist obviously spent a lot of time gathering up glorious relics that will never be seen again. It's artfully displayed and very interesting to look at in person; lots of detail to enjoy. I wish more buildings took the time to create something special like this mural.

Return, wondrous days of mechanical switches and four-dollar-a-minute international calling! "Bell Communications Around the Globe" is a 36 ft. x 17 tall mural by Anthony Heinsbergen on the wall of a Pacific Bell Telephone building in Los Angeles. A nearby buried time "Capsule of Communication" is supposed to be dug up on the building's 50th anniversary in 2011! And no doubt stuffed with more rusty old phone company junk....
