Terrace end, Alexandra Street, Shotton, Flintshire, UK

I've intended to take this photo for a couple of years, to record the advert for 'Beecham's Pills' ("Right The Wrong"), a laxative discontinued in 1998, though 'Beecham's Powder' is still popular as relief from the symptoms of cold & 'flu. I doubt the fading mural is protected for national heritage, and each time I pass, I half-expect to see it gone.

It's actually one of at least three 'Beechams' murals in this block of streets, but this is the most prominent, facing the eastbound platform of Shotton railway station.
