A bunch of great sign pics from Leisa

Thanks Leisa Clements for sending through such a group group of pics from around Melbourne town. Here are the signs I haven't posted about yet. Some are still there and some are long gone:


This one's on death row apparently.

Leisa says: Henry Berry & Co was a well-known salt merchant and wholesaler located in Collins Street c.1920-60. This warehouse is at the rear in Francis Street. (Another pic follows).
Flinders Street station in 2009...note the embossed lettering around the letter box



Fitzroy. Leisa writes that this Brunswick Street sign has been painted over:


North Fitzroy. Leisa writes that Drews Cakes is listed on the Yarra heritage citation as a confectioners shop:

Eaglemont - Leisa writes about these two signs:

The Eaglemont Nestle sign is still there but the Cadbury window in the old milk bar is gone. When I went there in 2009 it was the office of a heritage architect and she’d had the sign restored after it had been vandalised. Now it’s been completely removed and the lovely brass window frames painted over. The shop still had counters and cupboards.


Apparently this one has been painted over
