Mural of the Month! The Cable Street Mural

Yes, Autumn or is it Winter has finally arrived! Christmas is  (gulp!) 9 weeks away and already time for the shops to get out their Christmas baubles and mince pies.

Well, forget Christmas, this month’s cause for celebration was the re-opening of the Cable Street Mural. On a very fine October Saturday, a new plaque was unveiled which tells the story of the battle of Cable Street and the Mural. Anyway mural of the month is about the pics so lets get cracking!

Over the late summer, one of the original artist’s Paul Butler has been working on the piece. Here’s the mural covered in scaffolding!

Already it is easy to spot the repair work happening to the top of the mural! Here’s it is before:

Scaffolding up and work being done:

And after:

The restored mural looks amazing and we, at the London Mural Preservation Society have  hope that when a mural gets repaired then the others will eventually follow!

And here’s Paul on one of his days working on the mural! Well done to him and his helpers for conquering one of London’s biggest murals!

And as We always say, make time and go to see the mural!!!
