An elderly gentleman sat while holding a cane and wearing a cowboy hat. Behind him, women packed cans into boxes, and someone else picked fruit from a tree. Next to the elderly gentleman a gloved worker planted a tree.

In the center of the mural, a woman worked as a waitress and held a menu. Behind the woman, a girl swung from a tree. A man loaded fruit into a bag. A woman typed on a typewriter. And a railroad engine rumbled past a clock tower.

At the left end of the mural, a man holding a wrench leaned on a window. A tractor/trailer truck was parked behind the man. And a woman ran a printing press.

Below the mural was a hand painted sign that identified the "Growers Market." The sign included carrots and bananas, a loaf of bread, a chunk of cheese, and a cat.
