    Brings back memories :)
    I think the original was made in the late 1960s, this is probably the longest lasting sign on the Gold Coast, pretty amazing when you consider that nearly every structure here is replaced about every 20 years!

  • hahah more like 2 years! It used to be a joke in our house everytime we drove down the Highway I’d point to a hole in the ground and say “what used to be there” ?
