Vaccine poster defaced - Harrow

Billboard on the corner of Greenford Road and Cavendish Avenue near Subury Hill underground station

It looks like white paint has been hurled from a can repeatedly at a government poster that says "Join the millions already vaccinated." The area around the poster is covered with splashes of paint from this very sloppy bit of vandalism.

Update, the view next day (Sunday)

From "The Yard" to "Tiffty's Tavern"

A signwriter changing the name of this pub in North Greenford from "The Yard" to "Tiffty's Tavern" 

The font and colours suggest "an Irish pub." There are Irish pubs all over the world, and if the Irish state had marketing rights, it could probably live on the proceeds. But like the Murphy's, we're not bitter. My California/Filipino air steward friend says wherever they stopover, she always looks for the Irish pub. From Kuala Lumpur to Montevideo, from Cape Town to Anchorage, Alaska [You just made that bit up, didn't you? Ed.], you'll see the Gaelic font and assorted bicycles, mirror adverts etc and find a cold pint of the Dublin ambrosia awaits you, though it might have been brewed in Nigeria. So wherever you may be, "Sláinte Mhaith!"

The result. Tiffty's Tavern

Day of the Flying Leaves (Selected Poems) by Stephen Moran

“Like everyone, I go around imagining things, trying to identify what I see and hear and conserving memories. My poems are thoughts portrayed in words, in the belief that sometimes a word is worth a thousand pictures.” (Stephen Moran)
