Mile End Mural, 33 Mile End Road - can you identify any of the characters?
 Mile End Mural, 33 Mile End Road - a must see - who can you spot?
Professional graffiti artists and their efforts are a feature of the Brick Lane  area, and indeed guided tours of their work are on offer most days of the week.  A lesser known mural recently appeared on the wall of the offices of T V Edwards Solicitors of 33 Mile End Road and this one contains images of Jewish interest along with other fascinating images depicting the life and times of the East End.  A few snippets are below, but do double click the images to enlarge and see the full detail.
