This is an old mural from the late 1980s found in a backyard on E.Melngaila street in Riga. It it dedicated for the union of cab drivers that existed in the Soviet Union times. You can even see "1948-1988" written there and it means the mural was made on the 50th birthday of the union. Look at the idea behind it - the mural links history (horse riding as the beginning) with the future - a quite futuristic car for the times on the far right side.
