Banksy's Poundland

Banksy's Poundland

The missing Banksy found up for auction.

Location: 12-14 High Road, Wood Green, N22 6BX

Description: On the side of this drab Poundland in Wood Green appeared an original Banksy mural just before the Queen's Jubilee in May 2012. It was of a young street urchin hunched over a sewing machine making Union Jack bunting.

It became much celebrated by locals but in February 2013 it disappeared and a week later was mysteriously put up for auction in the United States. The piece entitled 'Slave Labour' was withdrawn amid a moral furore.
