As some people may know, Hackney Wick LO station is being rebuilt. Or,
more accurately, the former minimalist halt is being replaced by a
proper station.

The old station is approached by long ramps. On the west-bound side,
it's a zig-zag ramp, which runs behind an old pub, closed more than 20
years ago. The pub has become something of a canvas for local 'street
artists'.

You can get an aerial view of it in:
https://binged.it/2wuhBJW

The graffiti-covered pub is on the corner in the foreground, and the
zig-zag ramp up to the station is clearly visible. The new station is
being built on the site of the cleared car park to its right.

The whole area had become a grimy, industrial zone, and despite being
just across the River Lea Navigation from the Olympic site, little of
the Olympic redevelopment bonanza happened on that side of the canal.
But, belatedly, the area is being gentrified, with blocks of flats
popping up. It's within easy walking distance of the many job
opportunities in and around the Olympic Park, and of course now has a
frequent LO service (one stop away from Stratford) as well as new
local bus routes.

The old Lord Napier pub had seemed something of an anomaly. Long
derelict, it simply acquired new layers of colourful decoration from
the local artists, while new pubs like the Crate Brewery thrived just
yards away.

But now, finally, it is to be redeveloped. To my surprise, it's to be
restored as a pub, rather than another block of flats. The new LO
station frees up the space currently occupied by the zig-zag ramp
behind the pub, which will therefore be able to grow a little.

I took a few pictures earlier in the week, and if anyone is a fan of
street artists, it might be worth a viewing before it gets turned back
into a tidier, working pub.

For now. They are ruthlessly canning a large amount of their Birds Eye
View data on the grounds it's "Out of date". I'm probably not alone in
thinking I'd prefer an out of date view (with disclaimer) over nothing,
most of the time. Indeed, if wanting "how it used to look", every time.

Yes, I often use the out-of-date Bing views for exactly that reason. It
represents the 'how it was several years ago' view (as here), Google has
the 'how it was a year or two ago' view, and I use my eyes or camera to
capture how it is today.

For older street views over the last decade or so, this may help, and
unless they have withdrawn the facility, Google have a good archive of
aerial shots in many areas, going back over 50 years, which used to be
accessed via a button in the bottom right of the image area.:-

Well, that's excellent news, although it will be all artisans, kitchen
and dining, and prices with less than two decimal places I expect.

Is there a story behind the narrow boat being painted like that?
At first glance it looks like it has been graffitied as well but it
actually looks less randomly done than much of graffiti which although
starts off as artistic ends up with so many layers it becomes a mess.
The boat looks like it was inspired by dazzle camouflage once used on
warships.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dazzle_camouflage

Against the graffitied wall it does work reasonably well, perhaps the owner
is trying to avoid mooring fees.

I don't know the full story, but the paint job is as the boat came out
of the builder's yard in 2014. There are quite a few boats round London
which have been repainted in "dazzle" style to mark the centenary of WW1.

It was a special commission from a well known Argentine-Spanish artist
based in Valencia, Felipe Pantone, whose dazzling work appears around the
world. The boat is just one of many in this world gallery of public art:

The large graffiti on the local canal walls was, I think specially
commissioned from international artists for the Olympics, presumably to
cover up the previous scruffy graffiti. Since 2012, many more, less
skilled, local 'artists' have added their own work, which has detracted
from the Olympics version.
