Martin shared the following information about the gun and the American Legion Post 76:
This is one of two 75 mm Field Gun Model 1897 on M2 Carriages on display in front of the Johnson House visible in the distance behind him. The home was built in 1858 and serves as the Travis Post 76 of the American legion. The gun he is standing next to is serial number 23986 and the tube was built in 1918 for World War I. These guns were modernized after WWI. For additional information on Travis Post 76 online visit: http://travispost76.org/.
Martin provided the following background information about the Deep Eddy mural:
A view of part of the Deep Eddy Mural Project by Wanda Montemayor and Lisa Ord dedicated in 2011 and visible from along the walk trail with a telephoto lens. The flowing, sparkling wave of blue, green and white covers about 1,200 square feet of what was once an ugly expanse of concrete. More than 40,000 tiles and bits of irregularly shaped glass depict the early days of the oldest swimming pool in Texas.
