Murals surrounded the front of Carlin's Cafe as it faced Valencia Street at the corner of 14th Street. It wasn't a single mural. Rather it was a sequence of smaller murals.

A rocket powered BART train sped along the left of the mural. Below the train, a welder used a torch to repair metal. The lights of the San Francisco Bay Bridge glowed in front of the man.

Coffee poured over a coffee tower that spilled down into a giant cup of coffee. Next to the fountain an abstract person sipped coffee from a normal sized cup.

The 49er football team was drawn over the garage door. They were the San Francisco team for many years before they moved south to Santa Clara County.

The mural tumbled down the left side of the garage door. It showed players carrying a football behind the Super Bowl trophy. At the bottom a sign read, "Forty Niners 1999."

A closer view of the woman in the mural. The clock on her chest was actually the clock on the Ferry Building with the outline of the Ferry Building ghostlike in front of the woman.
