Adelaide back in the 1970s.
This building in Surrey Downs, next to the Golden Grove Tavern was originally a bank. Then in the early 1990s it became a Medical & Dental Centre. And when Home Hardware moved to Golden Grove Village in the late 1990s, the M+D was then moved next to the pharmacy. And it became a 99c store called Browse In & Save (later Look Buy & Save). But on January 20 2011, the gas-filled building burst into flames by a spark on electrical equipment. Luckily the nearest fire station was just up north of Golden Grove Road. Next day, the condemned building was later closed off and 6 months later, it was finally demolished.
Shortly after this pic was taken, it has been removed by the Tea Tree Gully Council. This sign is one of them made by the council itself during the 1970s & 1980s, despite the font being unique.
Do you remember these signals in South Australia?
They used to be common around the state, but now they’re replaced with new LED signals. This one is on Jetty Street in Grange.

Is Gawler’s economy that depressed? I want to see Gawler stay alive.
