Seddon, Yarraville and West Footscray

It's been a busy time of late and I've developed a backlog of ghost sign pics to post. So here they are, starting with a selection from Seddon, Yarraville and West Footscray, taken over the last couple of months since I've moved into the area with my job:


  1. Just to give you a date on one of your signs above...I signpainted the Palcolour sign when I was an apprentice at Omega signs in Box Hill about 30 years ago. It seems to be the last sign painted in a long line of previous works.
    I'm still a signwriter working out of Spotswood.
    I don't hand paint as much as I used to, but still enjoy it when I can get to sling some paint.

  2. That's fabulous Tony - wonderful to attach a real story and person to the artefact. Would love to follow up on this. A couple of initial questions: Were you ever involved with the Letterheads group in the 1990s? And were you aware of the Lewis & Skinner company at all?
