Maxwelton’s mysteries continue to unfold. First there was the legend of buried ships in the Maxwelton watershed. Now, someone wants to know the history behind a partially covered mural on the back of the grandstand at Dave Mackie Park.
Maxwelton resident Gary Stubbs would like any information and history about the painting that has Bugs Bunny and the words “Liquor Allowed” above in cartoonish lettering and jars. Stubbs said the mural looks like it is from the 1940s, and posited that the word “No” is probably behind a coat of paint, obscuring the mural’s message of “No liquor allowed.”
Stubbs said he spoke with members of the South Whidbey Historical Society, none of whom knew about the mural or its history.
Anyone with information about the mural’s history or suggestions of who Stubbs should speak with is asked to contact him at 579-4927 or email@example.com.
