No right turn at Maribyrnong Rd



From Moore Street, VIC 3039. This is one of two very similar signs on the same stretch of road: same wording, same lettering, similar weathering. I chose to photograph this one for its squashed-up last line – apparently they figured out the spacing on the other one. The signs are old and beaten but still doing their job.

60 Puckle Street, VIC 3039


Golden in the evening light, the ghost sign at 60 Puckle Street, Moonee Ponds, Victoria 3039, Australia. My best interpretation of the lettering is the name FRASERS painted over the words DAIRY PRODUCE & SMALL GOODS, partly obscuring them. The complete sign can be seen in the following image:


79 Holmes Rd, VIC 3039


Gorgeous in the morning light, the Marchants sign at 79 Holmes Rd, Moonee Ponds, Victoria 3039. The rest of the building is also aged and beautiful, dominating the corner of Holmes Road and Grandview Street, although this is the only painted lettering on it.


20 Margaret Street (rear), VIC 3039


There is more than one layer to this ghost sign, at the rear of 20 Margaret Street, Moonee Ponds, Victoria 3039. Under the words Astro Furniture and Gifts, I can make out:

Bagenzia Viaggi
“Che Si Distingue”
Moonee Ponds Branch

There is a character I can’t identify at the end of the word “travel”.
