Have you ever wondered what’s hidden beneath years-worth of spray paint graffiti? If so, you’re not alone. Imgur user PaulDeGraaf was curious about such, which is why he peeled off 30 years worth of paint from the Graffiti Hall of Fame, known as “Doornroosje,” in the city of Nijmegen, the Netherlands. According to DeMilked, people have been decorating the wall of the building since the 1970’s, as it was one a great hangout where people could freely smoke weed.

PaulDeGraaf wrote,

“What started as a 70’s Hippie cult place, became a center of music and art in the early 80’s. One of the first places where it was legal to smoke cannabis. It still a Music studio and Graffiti Hall of Fame. The building is surrounded by walls that are all spray painted from top to bottom.”
