The Birth of El Eggo

All throughout the 1970s there was an intriguing pseudo-surrealist mural painted on the façade of a ground floor shop at 281 West Broadway (today part of a restaurant) betwixt Canal Street and Lispenard Street, entitled ‘The Birth of El Eggo’. It depicted a Daliesque gentleman gazing sardonically at a perfectly shaped, perfectly white egg, floating mysteriously before him. There were other elements as well, but these were the primary ones. Does anyone remember this besides me, and perhaps even have a photograph of it?

    I know that you wrote this years ago but I’m desperately looking a photo of this. It was my father who painted this. If you got any info please contact me
