Murals along the Underpass


Another view of the Underpass in reading with the murals on it, as you can see it is all the way along. At the end is the River Kennet which was in full flood at the time. I'll post photos in the near future.

Taking part in Mural Monday

  1. These tile murals very much lighten the underground passages. A public service. Thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.

    1. They do but I think it needs some spucing up along there

  2. A mural in an underpass is always nice to make the sometimes gloomy atmosphere lighter. In this case a better one . Thanks for showing.

    1. I can't argue with what you say, many underpasses are so dull & boreing at least this one give some life to it.

  7. Such colorful paintings are beautiful. Otherwise the underground were just gray.

    1. Yes though I still would not want to go through at night, the river did not look too inviting

  10. I don't know the history of this mural. Was it commissioned? Do people just come by and paint? Here in the states a lot of spaces like this have been taken over by graffiti artists. Some of it is quite lovely, others not so much.

    1. I could not tell you though it looks like it could have been a community effort but I will be returning and will find out more

  11. The passage looks well lit and the murals make it colorful, Bill!

    1. Needs to be well lit where it is situated, and it does cheer it up
