Historical Mural

Our mural in the Metro Garden has been created as part of the Inner West Council Perfect Match Program. 
 
The work celebrates the site of the Vicars Woollen Mill (now the site of Marrickville Metro), an important place in the history and story of Marrickville. It pays homage to the original Indigenous inhabitants, the textile industry, the wool process and the immigrants and families who built and shaped the textile industry for which Marrickville became famous.
 
Alex Lehours created a contemporary piece using a combination of imagery and typography that reflects the vast history of the site but also looks to the future and provides inspiration for a younger generation who will, in their time, have an influence on the area as well.
