I've taken photographs of this artwork before and disliked the photo. The angle washed away most of the details and I deeply regretted not taking more photos. Today I got to rectify that mistake and I simply adore Ralf's aluminum and stencil installment.

The artwork is titled 'Brickyards Night School' The artit was inspired by an 1800's school in which a local brickyard were hiring young children which prevented them from attending school. Concerned with their education Mr Richard Guille created a night school so the children who worked during the day could attend class's at night.
