Chambers Street Footscray

Chambers street is a short street near Footscray train station.  It dead ends at the section of Nicholson street that is a pedestrian mall.  It is like a lane in that no buildings front on to it.  There is a small park part way along the street.

below:  This picture appears in a previous post ‘Guerilla territory’ because the large paste-up is a work by baby guerilla.  This building fronts on to Paisley street.
