Island History Trust Image Collection


Mudchute French Mural: a panel from the wooden fencing which ran along East Ferry Road, beside the Mudchute, in the 1970s. The panels were painted by children and artists and depicted scenes from Island life and history. This picture is a reference to the sheep who lived on the farm which is part of the Mudchute. The photograph was taken by local photographer Liz Adams. Donated by Liz Adams
