Heritage Wall Murals Trail – Waterloo Street

After Everton Road, we continued on foot via New Bridge Road and Hill Street to look for the second set of wall murals at 51 Waterloo Street.

Refurbished Old Hill Street police station with its striking multi-colored windows (total 927).
Gazetted as a national monument in December 1998, it now houses the Ministry of Communications & Information, Ministry of Culture, Community & Youth, National Arts Council, National Heritage Board and Media Development Authority.

The name is quite a mouthful.

Jacob Ballas Centre, the Jewish Community Centre along Waterloo Street.
I had not known of the existence of this building but the unmistakable Magen David symbol and strange writing on its facade caught my attention. 
Finally reached 51 Waterloo Street where the second set of wall murals were located.
Unlike the wall murals in Everton Road which were painted on the exterior walls, these were found on the ground floor corridor inside this building. As there was a wall behind me, I could not take a full frontal photo of the whole stretch.
