Statement of significance:

The pair of double doors of the Cricket Oval's maintenance store have been painted in silver paint, over the blue paint of the wood, in 1980's street style. The ornament is of curving lettering reading WAM USE. WAM is also graffitied in white on black paint between the doors. It is not clear whether this painting has been encouraged by the Oval or whether it is a particularly elegant piece of vandalism. At any rate it is distinctive and has a certain decorative quality because of the good proportions of the letters and the use of silver paint (not clear in this photograph).
