I think I’ve mentioned before how much I love old signs, be they advertising, notices or building names. I love the surprise connection with the past as you look up and notice fading paint or decaying letters put in place all those years ago.
I went for a walk today to take a photo of this sign. It’s on the side of an old milkbar that’s now an op shop. Up until recently there was no fence so I thought I’d better get this snap before the new owners decide they would prefer a nice white wall and another piece of history is covered over.
So, here it is. The Tarax sign in Challis St, Newport.
