If you recall, last Monday I showed you the air-brushed murals along the Devonshire Tunnel which is a pedestrian walkway connecting Chalmers Street to George Street along the imagined extension of Devonshire Street, Surry Hills. Today's murals, are in Chalmers Street itself from the start of the Devonshire Street Tunnel down to Eddy Avenue which runs along the front of Central Railway station.
There are quite a few panels to this mural as my final shot shows. The mural celebrates (mainly) the 150th anniversary of the railways in NSW, 1855 to 2005. They are a paen to the working man of our state, unabashedly pro-labour, pro-poor, and pro-rail. Each panel represents sometimes ten sometimes fifteen years, along that continuum.
