Carlisle, PA - Not UK. In this billboard are Jim Thorpe who went to the Carlisle Indian School, Mary Hays McCauley - better known as Molly Pitcher, and the 3rd person I believe is Benjamin rush, the primary founder of Dickinson College.

Great art work in this mural and unique POV. Your description reminded me of an old favorite film: Jim Thorpe, All American starring Burt Lancaster. Good shot.

Lotta mention of this mural out there but I like your photograph because it shows more of the context and placement of it on the wall of the eatery. Seems it was commissioned for the 250th anniversary of the town, in 2001.

Very cool shot. We have a Carlisle, Massachusetts next to my home town of Concord, Massachusetts. I love history and love how things like this are incorporated into projects where everyone will get a chance to see them and learn about them...just by asking, "What's that?"
