S. Porter's Plank
1895 - 1896
S Porter was a builder.
He worked on Croydon Town Hall
in 1895 and 1896.

S Porter was also a grafitti artist!
He scrawled his anger
towards Jabez Balfour,
Croydon's first mayor,
on this plank.

The collapse of Jabez's
Liberator building society
had brought poverty and distress
to thousands of people.
