John Augustus Walker Mural

This mural, entitled Fraternity, was painted in what is now the History Museum of Mobile by Mobile artist John Augustus Walker (1901-1967). It depicts popular Mardi Gras figures including Death, Folly, and a cat representing the Infant Mystics society. The mural is one of 11 pieces Walker created to adorn the walls of what was at the time Mobile's City Hall through a grant from the federal Works Progress Administration.
