<Back to OLD KENT ROAD Forward to WHITECHAPEL ROAD>
See all monopoly posts
As I was about to leave the Old Kent Road, I spied a tank. A very large tank, just off the beaten track down Mandela Way! As I was on a Monopoly walk I decided that this would be my community chest location. Although a former Czech army T-34 tank may not be the obvious community chest item, I figured that as it had been used and abused for artistic purpose, then it was good enough for me. So, here we have the tank in all it's glory.
A little but of googling shows that the tanks installed by Russell Gray, following a failed attempt to gain planning permission for this site. Apparently the turret is pointing to the council offices, who turned him down!

By the time I finished with the tank the rain was coming down so I had a very soggy walk up Tower Bridge Road, over the bridge and on to Whitechapel Road for my next location.
