A response from Toad Hall

Welcome back and more strength to you. On the neon signs: I lived here in 1968 when the spruikers had humour and the prostitutes seemed older and not drug addicted. As soon as they recognised me to be a local and not a customer, they treated me as a neighbour and if they spoke at all it would be likely to be about football. The neon signs were a part of those times
and ought not be found guilty by association with the current personnel of the 'strip clubs'.
Best wishes
the Toad

The editor says: Two of the spruikers I talk to have been there for 15 and 25 years. Does that give them heritage status?E
