There must be dozens of curious signs out there . . . here's one:-

During last week's wet weather, the permanent illuminated signs on the Melbourne Eastlink Toll Road have read, 'USE CARE WHEN ROADS ARE WET'.
What should we do when roads are dry?

How about A. Dong for the name of a Vietnamese restaurant here in Rosewater in Adelaide the large sign they have is even lit up at night so you cannot miss it.

Then there is a place at Beverly were they work over car motors and their sign reads in huge large red letters "Best head jobs in town". It is right behind a bus stop as well. I have photos of the latter but not of the former though.

I saw a "Long vehicles do not not use Short Street" in the inner north once. I think it was in Brunswick East, but might have been Northcote. Not sure where the boundary is. I was lost...

Somewhere in my photo collection there is a photo outside a mechanics workshop in Broken Hill advertising 'Maniacal Repairs'. Another shot from closer to Sydney shows 'Young Senior Citizens Centre'.

I saw a sign once which said: to whatever road. At the bottom of that sign, it said No Through Road.

The yellow part of this sign seem to have round edges.

Here's a photo I took a few years ago of a backpacker hostel that was up for sale.  The positioning of the sign perhaps could have been a bit better....

So, yes. If there are blokes in the air filters, the train line alarm fault light flashes twice...gotta love the PN proof reading! Wink

Of course, some signs are just funny photos...

I once worked in a first storey office in a small suburban two-storey commercial building - the sign on the wall near the entry read -

"In case of fire, please leave by the new fire stairs at the back of the building that will be erected immediately after this fire".

A warning sticker on the 93 class hot plate reads 'warning, hot plate is hot' (or words to that effect). No smeg smeg.

There was a tailor in Surry Hills (or maybe still is - I haven't been around that part of town for a while) who had a sign made from a board with adhesive lettering on it hanging from the wall.  Among other things, it advertised that he provided a "button hole service".  The "on" on the sign was frequently removed....

There is a 3551 class loco getting around the CQ network. The 3551s have a button to press to apply the parking brake, and another botton to release the parking brake. These are marked

        ON

Parking Brake

        OFF


The particular 3551 has



        ON

Parking Brake

        ON

The amazing thing is, they are not stickers, but actually raised moulded letters, cast in place when the entire panel was cast up. I will see if I can get a picture of it next time I work it.
