    It could very nearly be the Youngs pub sign on the Grand Union on Acre Ln

    It's not some part of the playground in Max Roach park is it? (this is a serious clutching at straws guess)

    One looking through my book on murals - this was painted in 1980 by a guy called Robert Wale and it's called "Piano Hand Dance"

    :cool:

    I've often wondered what that building was originally constructed for.

    I can see no one's ever going to get my photo, so I'll reveal all. It's the pub sign outside the Hero of Switzerland.

    Out of interest, does anyone know the source of the "new" WIlliam Tell image on the pub sign. It looks to be a photo of a 1950s(?) children's book illustration.

    no - It's nearer to where SarfLondoner suggested. It's round the corner from my mums.... :D
