Probably one of the livelier murals painted on Wellsville’s floodwall is one currently being worked on by artist Gina Hampson. It’s Pretty Boy Floyd running from the Feds.
Floyd was captured and killed in a shootout on the Conkle Farm out near Calcutta after his car broke down passing through Wellsville. At the time he was on the FBI’s Most Wanted List.
The mural is not yet completed but showing Floyd stepping out of the mural in an attempt to escape caught our eye. We wanted to share it with you.
