Inscription

{At the lower right:}
Turner + Drostle, '94

From Wikipedia: Designed by Rob Turner and Gary Drostle, It measures 9 metres (30 ft) high by 5 metres (16 ft) wide, and is one of the largest examples of wall art in Britain. It depicts Sutton's history in nineteen black and white panels. The centrepiece is Henry VIII's Nonsuch Palace in Nonsuch Park. It is surrounded by the heraldic beasts of the coats of arms of the local families of Carew, Gaynesford and Lumley. It also features local heritage buildings such as Honeywood House and All Saints Church in Carshalton Village, and the Old Cottage and Whitehall in Cheam Village. Old industries are represented by the inclusion of the River Wandle mill. The railway line, which ran by the river is shown, as is a Hannibal biplane, which used the former Croydon Airport.
