Old school cool, holds respect for most of us old enough to recognise change. Urban life revolves around what’s now. It hits the pavement running, desperately trying to stay ahead of its inevitable successor. In the sixties, Howard Morrison coined the word ‘Che’ '(pronounced Chur). A word jammed with multi definitions of acknowledgement, kinship, cool, appreciation, awe and perhaps many others. He may have thought it ephemeral at the time but this word has gone the distance. Here the tiki character poses in front of the old school graph-art. Rail carriage vandalism or an archived historical remnant?.
