No ghost signs in Darwin...

...but that's not surprising really, given that the place was given a thorough once-over by the Japanese Imperial Airforce in WWII, then by Cyclone Tracy in 1974.

This is what the main street (now the Smith St mall) used to look like though in the late 1930s. Note the Plume/Mobiloil signs. This was taken through the window at the Darwin Archives.
