I remember visiting the alley in 80s.  It was completed covered by Mod graffiti at the time. "Go on Jimmy!  Give her one from me!"  was one slogan that I can still remember.

The alley used to lead onto a Chinese restaurant.  Apparently, the Chinese chefs had little tolerance for the Mod disciples messing up their property.  The local legend stated that, if they caught anyone graffitiing there, they would chase them away with meat cleavers, screaming in Chinese.
