Banksy's Poundland

The missing Banksy found up for auction.


On the side of this drab Poundland in Wood Green appeared an original Banksy mural just before the Queen's Jubilee in May 2012. It was of a young street urchin hunched over a sewing machine making Union Jack bunting.

It became much celebrated by locals but in February 2013 it disappeared and a week later was mysteriously put up for auction in the United States. The piece entitled 'Slave Labour' was withdrawn amid a moral furore.

Location: 12-14 High Road, Wood Green, N22 6BX
