The eleven pictures are up to three metres high and stand out against the red brick church and cream plastered walls in the Aldi car park,  the former Hubb Community Arts Centre. They are high quality pictures and take their place along side the multitude of surrounding images including the large scale advertising billboards.  Very dignified.  On launch night taxis took visitors and residents to see the pictures. 4 outside aldi
