One property had a high brick fence, looking more like a wall and appeared to be a magnet for graffiti vandals. Graffiti is not often seen on street walks, probably because of the lack of suitable canvases.
About a third of the way along Garden Street, the residences stopped and factories began and continued to Colchester Road. Many had landscaped gardens. Several had picnic tables for the benefit of their workers.
The industrial area had lots of street parking, but many factories had facilities for workers at lunchtime.
