San Francisco Murals

North Beach Mural - San Francisco  2012

Tamales 1.00 - San Francisco  2012

Top: Seen in a North Beach alley. Not sure what it represents.

Later: OK, after much Googling, found this:

Check out the Dante Benedetti memorial mural on Jasper at Green. Dante was a North Beach legend who mentored hundreds of young men in baseball and life. He often fed them at his restaurant “New Pisa” when it was located at the corner of Vallejo and Grant and paid for their equipment out of his own pocket.

The mural depicts his old baseball players. Those still living are sitting facing the North Beach Field with their names on their jerseys. Those who have passed are represented as angels being looked over from the upper left by Dante, who passed away in 2005.

No explanation on what the boat represents.

Bottom: On a Mission District cross street.
