I was shopping with my daughter in the historic district of downtown DeLand, Florida when I saw this mural on the side of a building next to Pioneer Park. The mural is called "Pioneers in the Parceland" and was designed from an 1890 photograph of travelers waiting at the DeLand train depot. The mural was done in 1996 by the artist Perigo. Some of the people are carrying packages of oranges, which were often used to promote the area. The old Parceland Hotel can be seen in the background. The mural is so big and parts of it are obscured by trees, so I was not able to get a photo of the whole thing. If you would like to see the original old photograph that the mural was designed from, visit the link here.
