No trip out of the city would be complete without some charming lettering along the way. The first two gems came from Yarram, which gets my vote for favourite country town. Followed closely by the bottom two from Leongatha.

Yes! Australian country towns are a repository for hand rendered type in all its glorious profusion. Completely unlike the style one finds in the U.S. (he says knowledgeably...) I have dozens of these kinds of things on one hard drive or another and always meant to post them.

It's one of the main draw cards for getting out of the city.
There are some good towns and bad towns. The trick is driving through as many as possible to get the charming quotient as high as possible.
You should put them out there, odds are that some of the places have been demolished already.
