“Wilmington in the 1840s,” a mural at Wilmington’s main post office at 152 N. Front St., Wilmington [Map this], was painted by Winston-Salem artist William Pfohl in August 1940. The woman standing on the waterfront is his wife, Frances, and her initials, FYG, appear on the oval-shaped trunk beside her. The mural is about 6 feet high and 18 feet wide. An artist worked on restoring the painting in 2004.

While we couldn’t find any evidence that postcards or prints of the mural are for sale, it can be viewed from the New Hanover County Public Library’s digital collections.

    When I was a child, we, my parents, Aunts, Uncles, and cousins used to go to Wilmington, Wrightsville Beach, Carolina Beach, and owned a place at Topsail Beach. So I have great memories of the area. Plus someone asked a question about White Lake, and we used to have fun there as well. What I want to ask is when do you update this site. 12-14-2011. MyReporter is like nothing else, even in states other than NC. Your site is unique and interesting.
