Location Signs: Titirangi (Kate Millington, 2014)

Sometime in February I noticed that the welcome sign for Titirangi had “faded” – in fact faded away completely. Earlier this month, I found that a new sign had appeared, picking up on the original design, but in a crisper version. Welcome to Titirangi welcome sign Mark 3!

On my enquiry, Kate Millington explained that the previous sign did not weather well, and therefore had to be replaced. My thanks to Kate for supplying the information.

(edited as per Mels Barton’s comment below, thanks Mels)

For comparison, I append the previous versions which appeared on this blog earlier.
