Bassett's Mural at Reading Terminal Market

Most visible portion of mural above Bassett's ice cream stall
Unless you look for it, you might not notice the mural wrapping around the top of Bassett's Ice Cream at the Reading Terminal Market. But it's worth seeking out amid the overhead pipes, wires, lighting fixtures and ductwork.

Michael Strange, Bassett's chief executive officer and great-great-grandson of the founder, said the mural was created in the 1980s by the then-girlfriend of David K. O'Neil, the market's general manager at the time. Most of the faces on the mural are those of vendors and other people associated with the market.
