Last week while driving along High Street, Armadale, I noticed a little bit of an old sign showing as a building was being demolished. I couldn't work out what it was as I drove past. This week it has been revealed and I have taken a photo of it and of course I have already loaded it to Our Fading Past. The sign is about to be covered over by a new building and won't be seen again for decades, if not a hundred years. While Bournville Cocoa is something people my age are aware of, in a few decades, no one will know. The address is 1152 High Street, Armadale.
The OFP site is not functioning properly at the moment but Tony has promised to fix it up, haven't you Tony? but you can see the signs on Google Maps here. There are three pages of old Melbourne signs to look through. Some are absolutely wonderful and the contributors generous.
This is my latest addition, as mentioned above. It is almost unimaginable in the trendy High Street, but then it is not far from a grocer, Thomas Dux, kind of the equivalent of Waitrose in the UK.
