Lamented Laine Kaufman, who commissioned the mural in 2005:
I commissioned and helped design the mural on the former 7-11 at The Monterey and was sorry to see it literally wiped away. It was a depiction of Grover Cleveland, for whom our neighborhood is named, along with his young wife around the turn of the century, when Cleveland Park was first established.
As the developers of The Monterey, we felt the mural was a vast improvement over the protruding ugly red brick wall of the 7-11, which badly contrasted the yellow brick on the rest of the historic building.Here are two "before" photos and one "after" photo.
