The mural on the back side of the Salmo Hotel has two miners on it. The mural gives a good impression of mining as it was in this area in the 19th and 20th centuries. The rock in the ore cart is actually real ore that was donated by Maxine & Doug Lukey. This mural was completed in May 1990.
The mural is on the fence of the recycle depot located at 1017 Glendale Ave. and depicts salmon swimming up the Salmo river. Made possible by from a grant from the Columbia Basin Trust and donated stone from the Kootenay Stone Center, it was completed in October 2020.
