It’s time for Monday Mural again and some more from Kalgoorlie.
A poem, rumoured to have been penned by US president Herbert Hoover about his love for a barmaid he met in Kalgoorlie-Boulder, is the inspiration for a larger-than-life mural painted by artist Sarah McCloskey.
Mr Hoover gave an elaborately carved mirror to the hotel as a parting gift and composed a poem to the barmaid he fell in love with.

I like to find out as much as I can about all the murals I post, some have such interesting stories. Some, I can’t find anything at all about.
