Vale Uncle Jack (2022)

There is a sweet little tribute to Uncle Jack Charles in a small street in Collingwood. Blink, and you are sure to miss it. It only stands about 8 inches tall and is made of bronze. It sits within a doorway so yes, it is very hard to locate.

There is a floral tribute at his feet as well as other mementos as well as messages sprawled on the wall.

Uncle Jack walked these very streets many, many times before his passing and the tribute that remains in his memory, is a wonderful example of Northern suburb street culture.

Vale Uncle Jack!

Jack Charles (5 September 1943 – 13 September 2022)
