Melbourne Street Art on the 86 Tram Route: Collingwood - Stops 15 - 21
www.melbournestreetart86.blogspot.com
Much of the street art in the Collingwood section of the 86 tram route is located in lanes and alleys leading off Smith Street. However there are a couple of pieces on the main street itself and a great number in streets parallel with Smith Street or in alleys off side streets. What follows is by no means all there is to see; I have selected works that appeal to me. Also bear in mind that some works are replaced with others or removed at times so what you see here as of January 2013 may not all be there at a later time. As you progress down the page, the photographs commence at the south end of Smith Street where the 86 tram turns from Gertrude Street (86 tram stop 15) and finishing at the north end just before Alexandra Parade (86 tram stop 21).

2. Derby Street (in narrow laneway opposite the end of lane above] 86 Tram Stop 15 (Gertrude St | Smith Street)
The piece below is in an alley directly opposite the Derby Street end of the alley above (and right at the end). It is a little further off the 86 tram route than most examples I have photographed, but if you see the one above, it is close enough...

3. Little Oxford Street
