24 The Victor Clothing Co Building

The Victor Clothing Co Building

The Victor Clothing Co Building
This giant-sized mural here depicts the actor, Anthony Quinn. And he started off with quite humble origins. Coming from Mexico as an immigrant, but went on to worldwide success and Oscar nominations for roles such as Zorba the Greek. And it looks like a little bit of one of Zorba's dances that he is doing on the mural here. If you wonder what the background of the mural is, well, you just have to take a walk around the corner because those are the entrance ways to the Bradbury building. Well, on the other side of this building is another cool mural. In this mural here and on the one on the other side of the building, we can see the Victor Clothing Company. They were the guys that commissioned these murals and who own the building and who own the suit company that was in the building. Back in their heyday, they had about 8,000 suits here including this model here probably, which I quite fancy myself. But sadly, the company is long since gone. Now they're just a memory and a mural.
