Braithwaite Street, Shoreditch

Most of Braithwaite Street is under railway tracks next to Shoreditch High Street station on the London Overground.   The south end of the street used to be called Wheler Street and appears as such on google maps.  Photos taken September 2016.

Goddard gallery

In Newtown (Sydney),  Goddard Street is only one small block long.  It runs west from King Street.  The north side of Goddard is the wall of one building and that wall is home to a number of paintings.  Gigi’s Pizza occupies the front part of the building, facing King street, but I’m not sure what else is there.  Most of the paintings are unsigned and I have only been able to find  information about some of them online.

Narrow sidewalks, parked cars and rubbish bins – the bane of photographers taking pictures of street art!
