Wonder wall


The children's playground near Roberts Park in Saltaire has a curved wall, primarily designed, I think, to safely separate the skateboard area where the bigger kids hang out from the play equipment aimed at the younger ones. It provides a good surface for intentional and usually very artistic graffiti, though at the moment the painting is looking a bit scratched. It keeps getting renewed with a fresh design from time to time. I like its juxtaposition with the Victorian edifice of Salts New Mill in the background.

  1. Amazing. Reminds me of the Berlin Wall - which I saw just before it came down. And there's one dedicated to Lennon in Prague. I always knew Saltaire was up there amongst the stellar European destinations!

  2. Great shot. Love the contrast between the graffiti wall and the building.
