Signbite : Chipplingfern Ramble : November 25, 2012

This ramble began near Macdonaldtown Station and ended at the Halo site near the corner of Broadway and Abercrombie Street, crossing several mini-burbs, that indeed cross over each other Darlington, Chippendale, Redfern, Macdonaldtown and somewhere in there we probably were even in Sydney’s smallest suburb, Orange Grove. So much happening in the cracks I may not really have “seen” if I had not been looking.

Camera Lucida. This is one of my favourite signs. Can't seem to attribute any history to it.
