  1. During the 1980′s I drove or walked by that building in Birmingham a thousand times, but I remember the mural as being much more muted and weathered. They must have cleaned it for the ’05 photo.

    I knew a girl who tried to open a nightclub in that building, without
    bothering to obtain a business license, liquor license, etc.
    She was also waiting tables at a restaurant I managed in Homewood.
    When the city raided her off-the-radar club, she called me and said
    she wouldn’t be into work her shift because she had “jail issues.”
    This was around ’88 or ’89, when people were starting to say “issues,”
    instead of “problems.”
