David Aber made that montage from the photos he took on April 2nd. Tomorrow morning's entry on The Tucson Murals Project blog will have closeups of the two posts. Starting tomorrow (August 25), you can click to see the closeups.

Mailbox archive mystery: 2415 Somewhere

The camera says I took a photo at 2855 E. Grant at 6:05 AM on June 27, 2013. I rode my bicycle a ways, then took the photos below four minutes later — at 6:09 AM. The address on the box is 2415. Where did I take them?

I searched streets around the area with Google Maps Street View for addresses starting with 2415. It looks like there's an office building behind — maybe that's along Tucson Boulevard? No luck. So here are the photos. If you know where I took them, please leave a comment below! (You can remain anonymous.)

Birds are walking across the top of this box, and a lizard flag adds color:

I flew by on June 24, 2013 (and stopped for a photo). I haven't published the photo until today.

You can't miss those huge house numbers! And the “Yes” flag is a fun addition.
