St. James Big Local recently announced the start of their exciting new project to be created by internationally renowned street artist, Phlegm, who has been commissioned to design a mural on the wall of the international supermarket in Walthamstow, London.
His fantastic design, seen below, depicts the triplane developed by Edwardian engineer, Alliott Verdon Roe. The plane was created under the railway arches in Walthamstow Marshes, from where Alliott also made his first all-British powered flight.
The picture links the almost forgotten aviation history of Walthamstow marshes with Phlegm’s love of tri-planes. As a gateway to the marshes, the picture also perfectly complements ATM’s beautiful bird mural opposite.
