Just a Girl and a Bird

It’s time for Monday Mural again and some more from Kalgoorlie.

Artist – Em Anders
Artist: – Sarah McCloskey

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.

Posted as part of Monday Mural hosted by Sami at ColourfulWorld.


  1. Two great finds, Alison.
    I like to find out the stories too, but it can be hard. Some of the artists are quite vocal about their work, others not so. And sometimes I can’t even find the artist.
    It seems only fair to give them recognition given the effort they have put into providing us with their art
