Old mural discovered at The Viking destroyed

Posted by Geeky Swedes on January 20th, 2014

On Saturday, we wrote about a vintage mural that was uncovered during the demolition of The Viking. Then sometime on Sunday or early Monday morning, someone carved out a big chunk of it:

“I walked by this morning to take a pic and it was torn up and on the ground,” said My Ballard reader Becker in an email. “It looks like someone might have tried to save it but screwed up.”

When we arrived to take a photo a few hours later, we didn’t see any obvious pieces in the wreckage. It’s unclear whether someone attempted to salvage it or whether it was purposefully destroyed. The remaining wall still stands.

Meanwhile, demolition continues today at the old car shop on the southeast corner of 24th and 65th, clearing the last remaining buildings on the property.

(Thanks Becker for the tip.)
