One thing is for sure – the change

More than once I have told about my favorite backyard at Adlerstraße 59, in Dortmund’s Unionviertel. Whenever I can I pop in to look what has been changed since my last visit. Something continually changes.  Advertisements

Oldies but Goldies

Probably from Backyard Jam 2014 and in the universe of graffiti as old as the hills. Adlerstraße 59; SYRO HACF „ALLES WIRD GUT“
