Gone Depot

From Dave Brigham:

In a hurry to take pictures of an abandoned municipal pool (see October 10, 2016, "Everyone Out of the Pool!"), I stopped in my tracks at this beautiful mural.

The Faneuil Depot, named for the nearby Faneuil Street (which was presumably named after Peter Faneuil, of the famous hall in Boston), stood on this spot from 1882 until 1962, when it was torn down to make way for the Massachusetts Turnpike. The mural was painted by Joshua Winer on a bridge abutment for that highway, which is a nice touch.
