Simply magical.

Earlier this month, Bham Now published a photo gallery with several outdoor murals from the Southside and Avondale neighborhoods of Birmingham titled “Tour of outdoor murals on Southside’s 3rd, 4th and 5th Avenues South.” That story was a follow-up to our September 2016 article “A Guide to your Fave Bham Murals.”

This past week, we went all out and took additional original pics of murals across the city that had not been featured in the previous stories.

We did not get them all, but here is a google map of the magical outdoor murals Bham Now has located throughout town.

Check it out and please let us know what we may have missed by contacting Bham Now at hello@bhamnow.com .

Now onto the gallery.
