Discovered some wonderful new (to me, that is) street art on the walls of Tamsui Old Street area 淡水老街 today ~ including this one of Dr. George Mackay, first Presbyterian missionary to northern Taiwan (1844-1901), who arrived in Tamsui in 1872 and stayed here more or less until he died. Early photos show him going off on trips armed with dentist equipment for pulling out teeth, and Bibles to share the Gospel… wonder what he’s think of this painting done in his honour?
Then up behind the famous Matzu Temple are some steps and walls painted with famous local scenes…..
I like ’em! Brightens up the place considerably ~ so do come ‘n visit Tamsui, it’s THE place to be!
