A Part of Neighborhood History

The Ocean Avenue Mural
Fondly, Royce reflects on his years with the Oceanview Mission Ingleside Business League (OMIBL), where he preached the value of community awareness and united business growth. This is the mural he spearheaded on the Ocean Avenue PG&E building at Junipero Serra Boulevard in 1999. In it are people whose history reflects their strong ties to the neighborhood and the larger San Francisco community.
