A psychedelic mural was painted over the entrance to what was originally Tower Records. The store changed ownership after Tower Records closed, and was last Bert's Shoe. The building was empty when this photo essay was created.

The ceiling of the entrance was painted in psychedelic designs. In the center an opening to the sky was painted. That sky did not match reality which was gray clouds and rain that day.

A detail shot of the inside left corner of the building's entrance. The psychedelic designs matched in places and didn't match in other places.
