That is a small one, after all

Just off Old Kent Road, on a small plot of land, lies an old Soviet tank. Rumour has it that it appeared after Southwark Council refused the landowner planning permission to build a house, instead accepting his application to erect a small tank, believing that it was a nondescript storage container. Today it is a popular attraction for graffiti artists and regularly sports a new facia. It symbolises two great wars, one between communism and capitalism, the other between a man and a local council planning department.
