Signs from another time

The other day I was wandering around the area near my house and for the first time I noticed this sign.

Crazy what you see when you stop looking at the footpath! Isn't that name fantastic? It conjures up a whole different era doesn't it?

So I made an effort to look up more around the neighbourhood, and was rewarded with this gem.

I love the irony of a peeling painted sign advertising long-lasting paint. Mind you, I'm sure it's been up there for decades! Also, how wonderful is that red nextdoor to the sign?

  1. Well spotted. I'm always surprised and pleased at the things I see when I really look around.
