A Post made famous by Morrissey



A Post made famous by Morrissey

Mozzer and Post can be seen on the 'Bona Drag' album artwork

Location: Tench Street / Reardon Street, E1W

Description: After the break up of 'The Smiths', Morrissey has been on a long and successful solo career that has seen him continue where he left off from The Smiths...making cracking tunes and being jolly amusing to boot!

And so to this spot and this post, in fact on the junction of Tench & Reardon Street you will see the leaning post.

A leaning post made famous by Mozzer and his 1990 compilation album 'Bona Drag'.

This post was used by Morrissey and Boz and his band at the time at the end of the video to 'We Hate It When Our Friends Become Successful' and the street sign is shown covered in Morrissey related graffiti.

The street sign appeared briefly towards the end of the 60's classic film 'To Sir With Love', starring Sidney Poitier, who gets off a bus on Tench Street and turns into Reardon Street passing the road sign.
