Photo of the mural in the King's Highway Dubrow's

This photo was also sent to me by the photographer, Marcia Bricker, who says it's of the mural that was in the Dubrow's on King's Highway in Brooklyn.

I'll be posting one of Marcia's photos each day, just so people can savor them. There may be a lapse this weekend, as I am going to Seattle for a friend's wedding, and don't know how much internet access I'll have.

This is a small detail of the mural which must have been at least 15' x 30'. It was a harvest scene, somewhat biblical I always thought, in warm ocher tones. I regret not having a color photo. Most of the photos I took were of people sitting under it talking, eating, dreaming...it was a great contrast to the scene just below it.
While the Manhattan Dubrows was busy during the day with garment center workers, the Kings Highway branch came to life at night with women in even mink stoles sometimes and with friends and families on Sunday afternoons.
It's encouraging to hear from others as they relive their memories. I've heard very little about the Dubrow's on Eastern Parkway near Utica Ave. When I went to find it, it was already a Rainbow womans shop. Did it have a mural too?
