Victorian times collides with the modern world the other day when I was walking around Elephant and Castle toward the Imperial War Museum and saw this lovely horse-drawn funeral carriage standing in the bus lane…Reminded me of the photo Maggie Jones shared in her Art Spot interview. Here’s a view of the bus lane horses from the side.
The latest Banksy piece that showed up down on The Grange, Southwark, a collaboration with Kieth Haring, was boarded up the next day by the building’s owner… but not before Maggie Jones got in one last sneaky shot.
This photo by G2Burning is what it looks like underneath.
The man who boarded it up told Maggie he was covering it to protect it because he is a Banksy fan and an artist himself. In about one year from now, the building is set to be demolished and he is hoping to salvage this piece of wall.
Maggie Jones captured a little bit of London life that can get under your skin unless you keep up a good attitude about it and take it all in as part of the London experience like the happy guy on the left seemed to do! From the Flickr pool:
