‘I did pieces for her instead. Beth walls. All around the city… There’s one near the Hoover Street station.’ – pg 58
There are a number of different train stations mentioned throughout Graffiti Moon, mainly in relation to Shadow’s art. Hoover Street Station is not a real station in Melbourne and, like many of the locations in the book, is an amalgamation of several different locations. In this case it’s a mix off Yarraville (pictured), Footscray and Westgarth stations – although we didn’t visit all of these. Yarraville station is actually on Anderson Street, right near The Mad Moose (of the incredible pizza) and it was quite a cute station, as far as train stations go. We’re from the Eastern suburbs so a picket fence is a nice change from wire fencing and drunks with goon bags.
… But in all seriousness, East side is da best.
