Melbourne Street Art on the 86 Tram Route: Fitzroy - Stops 12 - 15
www.melbournestreetart86.blogspot.com
The Fitzroy section of the 86 tram route commences at stop 12 and finishes at stop 15. Although it is one of the shortest sections of the 86 route featured here, it is one of the richest areas for street art. Most of the street art in the Fitzroy leg is located along, or in, lane ways and streets that lead off Gertrude Street but some is in off street areas. As you progress down the page, the photographs commence at the west end of Gertrude street near where the 86 tram turns right from Nicholson Street and finishing just shy of the east end of the street, where the 86 tram turns left into Smith Street. I have featured the majority of the works on this part of the route, but not all and the selections are based on what appeals to me. It is well worth making your own explorations to see what you can discover and might like. Street artworks do get replaced or removed sometimes, so what you see here as of January 2013 may be different in some instances at a later date.

There is a lot of street art throughout the length of Little Smith Street, which runs parallel with Smith Street. Smith Street is featured in the Melbourne Street Art 86 Collingwood page Little Smith Street ends at Webb Street, a Smith Street side street, but is included here to avoid the Smith Street page getting too large.
