Churchill Bar Mural, by 1AM Art Studio, As A Collaboration Form Of Art, San Francisco, California
Churchill serves up straightforward, world-class cocktails in a space that recalls WWII-era bars and canteens. If a well-traveled diplomat needed a stiff drink during his stopover in San Francisco during the 1940s, we like to think this would be his favorite watering hole. We've mixed vintage fixtures, raw and reclaimed materials with modern accents to create an atmosphere of unpretentious sophistication: Yes, our bar is handcrafted from a single slab of walnut. No, we don't expect you to be gentle with it. [from churchill bar website]

On of the bomber's engines and propellers faced 14th Street. That side of the building covered part of the mural with a fire escape.

The mural looked huge when contrasted to those waiting at the SFMTA stop for either a J-Church trolley, or a 22 Fillmore bus.

One of the engine's props rested behind the lip of the building, one of the others overlapped the outside of the building.

The cockpit of the plain was empty. Without pilots, the plane could not fly.

Beyond the airplane in the mural was a painted sunset. The perfect metaphor for a San Francisco tavern.
