Aurora’s mural was the first to be created in the series of the final 32 murals in the collection. A truly outstanding piece of art, the details of this mural make the streetlights appear as if they actually light up! Known as the “City of Lights”, early 20th century Aurora comes to life in the painting with a nearly three-dimensional view of a car traveling in the brightly, illuminated downtown.  Aurora was not only the first city along the Lincoln Highway with street lights, but also one of the first in the nation.
