A sneak peek at the big map and board for my signwriting project, soon to be displayed at a Yarraville cafe

The image below is a scaled-down first mockup of an arial map of the western suburbs of Melbourne, with records of Lewis & Skinner signwriting jobs from those areas placed around its perimeter.

The arial photos come from a 1945 arial survey undertaken of Melbourne and available here:

This map will be printed as a two-metre wide display for Lady Moustache cafe at 84 Gamon Street Yarraville, alongside a bunch of original documents and signwriting equipment. The exhibition, which will run from September 30 to October 4, will also feature live signwriting from Tony Mead on the wall of the cafe. More info to follow soon.

 Lisa (project coordinator) is still to put in lines from the signwriting items to places on the map - but you get the idea :)
