For All Time

2013-03-12 RobinsonOld+
This is the second mural to Brian Robinson in Disraeli Street. This is a much older one than the one featured on Extramural Activity a few days ago; versions of this mural on this gable go back to at least 1993. Note that the artist has included a transmitter or surveillance tower on the skyline
See the previous post for more details of his death.
A close-up of the plaque is below. As the plaque notes, his mother died at the same time –she reportedly had a heart-attack when she heard of his death.
