We watch, and take pictures.  This is a portion of the same shot.

Haul out your stashed $2 bill, and look at the back.  If you have inclination for one link today, check out this one . . . “things you may not know about the Declaration.”  I certainly didn’t. And here’s more than you ever wanted to know about that image.

And if you’re wondering what the King thought, to Parliament he declared:  “daring and desperate is the spirit of those [signers], whose object has always been dominion and power….”  For the rest of context, click here.

Now read some or several versions of the declaration:  here or here.  It’s less than 1500 words.

for sale, in this case.  I’m neither the seller nor an agent for the seller.  I’m just the messenger for “a serigraph wall mural attributed to Carl G. Evers, a depiction of the busy part of lower Manhattan accurate to  1876.   It’s huge:  six 10′ by 2.5′ panels. It comes with  four more [with] blank background. A small limited run released by James Seeman, it’s  never been displayed and in perfect original condition.”

The contact person [Sara] can be contacted at popsbasement24@gmail.com, and says, “My 90-year-old grandfather has strong ties to the seaport area.  He needs to sell it. I’m trying to find a private buyer or a non profit or someone who may buy it to donate to the museum. His main concern is that he wants it to be appreciated and seen.  I’m hoping to find the right person whose interested or may know the perfect person or place.  And, you can request to see the piece at its location in Staten Island.”

Gift hunting, anyone?

I’ve not seen the mural, but I hope it get a new home soon.
