Art Centre, 13-13/A, Mutton Street.

Mutton was an underestimated barometer of the social climate of the city in the aftermath of communal riots.
Butchers would often withdraw selling mutton to members of the community with which there was conflict, when tensions were still high, and would resume sales once normalcy was restored.

Today there is virtually no mutton to be found on Mutton Street.
