Lloyd Johnson… Helen, my Mum was friends with one of the ladies of the Dimarco family and we would visit her upstairs in their home above the cafeteria. I remember going there in the 1950s and she had just had a charcoal Mural drawn on the wall of an Italian landscape.It was really well done just in black line drawing… I remember being so impressed by it ! It seem like complete relaxed freedom compared to the average home decor of the time.
