- Photographic image of a mural hanging on the end property at 1824 Columbia Road Northwest in the Adams Morgan neighborhood of Washington, D.C. taken on May 4, 1994.
- The mural features imagery of the Statue of Liberty, the Capitol and images of nature juxtaposed with images of the city. Behind the painting, there is a ghost sign featuring a faded hand painted white sign that says "Menchini's Califlorida Fruit Shop". This building has historically housed Latin stores. In 1964, Hierberto Gonzalez opened the first Americana Grocery, a regional Latin grocery store in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area. This building later housed Image Hair Salon, a Dominican hair salon. Adams Morgan is a part of Ward 1, located in Northwest Washington, D.C. According to 1990 census data, Ward 1 had a population that was 18% Latino and 60% Black Non-Hispanic. This is the highest percentage of Latinos in Washington, D.C. and one of the most diverse wards in Washington, D.C. at the time.
