100 marching bands for Canberra’s centenary Breaking: Congratulations to Zed Seselja

Replacement of Watson suburb sign

February 21st, 2013 at 01:02pm

One of the things which seems to be happening throughout Canberra, presumably as part of the centenary celebrations, is the replacement of old signs identifying suburbs with new ones containing details about the suburb or the person after whom the suburb is named.

Today, in a case of “right place, right time” I passed by the sign identifying Watson at the corner of Antill and Knox Streets as the contractors were taking it down. They kindly paused, after they had cut the sign’s posts, as they were about to remove the sign, to allow me to get a photo for historical purposes.

I’ll get a photo if the replacement sign when I get a chance.
