The mural was originally painted in 1983 by artists Mick Harrison and Caroline Thorp. Over time the mural faded and was looking well weather beaten until local organiser Vinnie O 'Connell and Positive Arts came up with a plan to restore it to its original beauty and give the local community something colorful to look at.
The mural featured the recently restored Brixton Windmill, the only one of its kind in London and also some images of bread making, the cogs in the windmill and Ben the dog from the nearby Windmill music venue on Blenheim Gardens.
Here is a stage by stage photo montage of its completion. The photos do it no justice so please take a look if you are in Brixton.
