Artist: Kane Scream Smith and Emily Roberts
The idea for this cabinet can from the young daughter of the woman who lives in the house behind it. The cabinet was frequently tagged.
The train is there as apparently a lot of people ask where the Waterloo railway station is, which is only at the end of the street, so was kind of like a directional guide there. Their cute dog also has a starring role.
