Denistone

denistone-skiing-grass-prohibition-usg.jpg
 

We're used to our local parks prohibiting ball games and riding bicycles but we don't often see skiing prohibitions such as this in Denistone Park, Denistone.


Denistone

denistone-sign-vet-hairdresser-usg.jpg

Overheard in Perkins Street, Denistone West: I washed my tail this morning and now I can't do a thing with it.


Denistone East

denistone-east-sign-traffic-usg.jpg
 

Isn’t it great to see that humour can be used in things as official and mundane as traffic signs? Kissing and riding are permitted (when parents drop off their children at school) in Brabyn Street, Denistone East.


Drummoyne

drummoyne-chemist-closing-hours.usg.jpg

I know why it is 10.05pm for this chemist shop, but I'm not telling. If you have enough courage to make a fool of yourself like I did, you can ask on the corner of Victoria and Lyons Roads, Drummoyne.


Drummoyne

drummoyne-sign-house-purchased-usg.jpg
 

A Victoria Road, Drummoyne, deep thinker realised what the rest of us hadn’t: houses are bought as often as sold.


Drummoyne

drummoyne-letters-numbers-usg.jpg

Eighteen (18) Wolseley Street, Drummoyne: Remember fifty (50) years ago when all quantities had to be shown in words and numerals, even though none (0) of us understood why?


Drummoyne

drummoyne-sign-birds-aggressive-usg.jpg

I am not sure what to make of this sign. Cockatoo Island is in the heart of Sydney Harbour. Janet Street, Drummoyne.


Drummoyne

drummoyne-sign-basket-case-usg.jpg

Why would a business in busy Great North Road be a basket case? It's the name of a laundry.


Drummoyne

drummoyne-famous-wrong-spelling-usg.jpg

You can probably work out the name of this outlet. But what's wrong with it? Journalist standards insist that you spell all digits from one to nine, but just use the numbers for 10 and above (unless at the start of a sentence). This chain reverses both rules. It should be: Seven 11.
