Found - painted remnants of tram advertising. Now it's time for a game of jigsaw!

Yesterday, a friend came over with some painted strips of composite board. Patrick owns a landscape design business and had been salvaging wood from the mechanics' pits in the Brunswick tram depot.

The boards seem to be the remnants of painted ads that used to adorn Melbourne's trams, as can be seen here in this photo on Wikipedia, and  video by Yarra Trams:





Below are three photos of the fragments. They appear to be ads from the 1960s that were cut up and reused. If you can tell what any of these pieces used to sell, post a comment and I'll buy you a coffee!
