Bristol: Possible New Banksy At Frenchay?
27 May 2014, 12:07
A possible new Banksy stencil has appeared in his home city of Bristol.
It shows The Queen's grandmother Queen Mary holding a rose and has appeared in an old greenhouse on the Frenchay Hospital site in Bristol.
Queen Mary did visit Frenchay in 1943 while it was being used by American troops during the Second World War. The final patients based at Frenchay left last week as most of it's work has moved to the new £430 million pound super hospital in Southmead.
So far the stencil of her hasn't been added to Banksy's website. A genuine Banksy called 'Mobile Lovers' was famously put near a youth club at the bottom of the M32 this Spring. An image of that was put on Banksy's site. Another suspected Banksy was recently added to the wall behind a phone box in Cheltenham.
