Nearly everyone on the Slopes has a retaining wall. They are a function of the steep terrain and the residents’ desire to make the most use of their land. A state grant in 2004 turned this retaining wall into a work of art. Unfortunately, seeping water has taken its toll on the mural. Its timeline starts in the 1850s when South Side existed as a separate town called Birmingham. Created by Richard Bach, the mural depicts the varied character of South Side, its love of music and athletics, hard-work and fun.
