    Yeah, I liked the Post Office artwork. I wonder how many areas of London now have these artworks.

    Fucking hate these things, there's one in Brockley too. There's enough street art in the area, we don't need a copy/paste from other south London areas.

    Middle-aged middle-class types seem to love them, the bloke who does them must not be able to believe his luck.

    Yeah I read about him. The signs are already so bland it wouldn't surprise me if they leak out of South London and infect other neighbourhoods with their cheapo instant faux retro coolness. :(

    I like stuff on the street, but this corporate/ sponsored by local business stuff makes me dry heave. I like the temporal spontaneity of some work, even tags up to a point- it shows life and kicking back.The M/C embraced stuff at the likes of ED station smells of death and profit

    The hairdressers on CHL (Crown and Glory I think) has moved and the planning app sign says it will be a restaurant. Next to the newish bakery and pizza place.

    Looks like internal clearance is happening in the former club couture building on Camberwell Church Street. There's also a nice new butterfly painted under the railway bridge opposite the generic neighborhood branding.

    In other news, the picnic tables on Camberwell Green have been removed due to late night disturbance for residents in Peabody estate.

    I saw on Camberwell Online that we're getting a branch of The Dutchie there - a Caribbean restaurant with other branches in Croydon.

    Sounds more interesting than the last thing I heard about that place.

    There's a Farcebook group full of pictures like that: Historic Southwark: Camberwell, Southwark and Bermondsey

    Not a bad series.
    I like this series because it covers less obvious neighborhoods

    friendofdorothy it is so much worse than Thatcherism now

    I liked that. Makes camberwell look so green, which is not usually how I remember it
