The Painting Banker

I recently visited my local Citibank branch (California and Battery Sts., San Francisco) to open an account for the nascent illumos Foundation. The walls are charmingly decorated with huge murals of San Francisco. The banker I was working with said that these were painted decades ago by the original bank’s manager, who included a wry self-portrait, complete with cigar, in the detail photographed above. Presumably “DCS” is his initials. I’d love to get photos of the whole thing – they would make great decorative posters for those of us who love the city.
