around Jewell station

Jewell train station is on the Upfield line in Brunswick.  The Upfield Bikeway path runs alongside the tracks at this point.   Most of the walls along the bike path have street art on them.  This is a selection of the graffiti that I saw around Jewell station and south from there  to Park street.
