The Waterloo station in London is also named after "my" Waterloo, but I think only few people know that.
Anyway as Waterloo has a very little train station with two platforms to go to platform two from the main entrance you have to go down some steps, into a tunnel which leads you to the other side. All the walls had always attracted taggers to leave there dirty tags everywhere and although it was cleaned and repainted often, a few days later it looked dirty again.
The city had a good idea. It hired street artists and they painted the way to the other side with Graffitis.
the horse looks beautiful
Going down towards the tunnel
in the tunnel
and going up to platform 2.
It looks clean, color and cheerful and there are no tags anymore ! From time to time the Graffitis are refreshed because they always look like new at least to me. There must be a secret rule between Taggers and Graffiti artists, because ever since no tags have been painted on the walls !
