About Dalston Lane, Hackney
I used to live in Hackney in the East, and I was always admired this triangular junction near Hackney Downs train station with the railway bridge cutting through both roads at the far end. It is a proper East end scene and the hand painted signage makes it all the more enjoyable.
It was tricky to paint, however, as I had to move about a very busy road junction while I worked. Hackney can be a tough area too, so every couple of minutes car drivers would bellow and hoot at each other for perceived transgressions. One even ended up in a road fight. Everyone was blowing their horns then. Delaying a journey in London is a serious offence.
