The Bella Luna/Milky Way Mural in Hyde Square on Feb. 9, 2008

Remember the Bella Luna Mural?

Our "Throwback Thursday" Photo of the Day doesn't go back far, but it seems an age ago, doesn't it? Many of you will remember the Bella Luna/Milky Way mural that adorned the wall at the night spot's former home in Hyde Square.

Scott Willis took this richly-colored long exposure on Feb. 9, 2008.
