The ‘Anarchy’ sign…
Back along the Brayford River in Lincoln again for this shot, just off Dixon Street and the causeway which leads into the city centre. The ‘Anarchy’ symbol, surely the starting point for any wannabe graffiti sprayer? In 1982 I plastered this all over my school books, I was fourteen and wanted to bring the government down. Actually I didn’t, I had as much understanding of the symbol as I had the Mandarin alphabet but the symbol looked good.
But back in the late seventies and early eighties this symbol was representative of the punk movement and it has managed to keep its sense of notoriety ever since.
All of that said it is nothing more than a piece of mindless vandalism spoiling an informative sign at the edge of a wonderful stretch of water.
