Umm I distinctly remember BOB OLLEYS mural on the toilets cos I recall the building before it was painted on - I used to walk past.
I've driven past a few times recently and havent actually noticed it, is it still actually there?? :?:

It has long since gone! I think it was taken down for a Museum, but could be wrong on that?
