Melbourne's 86 tram route as a giant open air gallery of street art


Melbourne, Australia is internationally known for its street art and its trams. Melbourne Street Art 86 imagines Melbourne's 86 tram route as though it were a giant open air gallery of street art with its own regular tram service. The pages in the dark blue side bar below have photos of street art by the suburbs the tram passes through. Locations are noted by tram stop, street location and also on maps of the area that can be downloaded or printed. Other Melbourne suburbs rich in street art are also featured.

First steps in North Carlton

I had a first wander around North Carlton this evening, which is directly north of the city. The following photograph shows the kind of endless, die straight streets typical of the area:

It will be a while before I get a chance to look around the Carlton area in a major way, but here are a few shots I took today. There was a weird sort of light and I later discovered I had a bit of a smudge on the camera lens, so don't be surprised if some of these look just a touch odd, but why kind of eludes you.

I have put the locations on, as it will be quite some time before I add a page with Carlton street art to the site.

This is from the corner of Rathdowne Street and Palmerston Street. 

In the entrance to the lane off Park Street, between Rathdowne Street and Arness Street
