Goetz Sign, Hall Street

The Geotz sign used to sit proudly high up on the workshops wall at the Hall Street end of the saw-tooth roof, as seen in the 1963 photo below. Following demolition of the workshops in 2008, the sign was relocated to its present location above the roof of the remaining brick building along Hall Street. The remaining former office complex building has a Heritage Overlay, which hopefully includes the sign. For details of the Heritage Overlay, see this PDF, p.33
