Just heard that the Georgetown mural on Bailey St. next to the old Hansen's Florists shop has been removed. I presume the building's owners, the Korean Central Baptist Church, removed the mural as part of their expansion into the lower part of the building. Hansen's Florists, who had been downstairs tenants since World War II, recently had to move to 4th Ave. S. to accommodate them. (According to this Seattle Times story: "Personally, I feel bad and sad about the situation, but the church needs the space," said church elder Paul Seo.)
I wonder if the church elders also feel bad and sad about removing the mural without
giving any warning to the community.
Normally I would include a picture here. But I'm not sure I ever bothered taking a picture of the mural because I figured it would always be there.
(Maybe they're readying the space for some big beer ads?)
It would be totally rude and unneighborly for me to say something like I hope the ghosts who supposedly inhabit this former Masonic temple slam an extra door or two in protest.
