It is always sad when we discover one of our ghost signs has gone..
We found this on Fading Victoria. Well worth a gander..
Was quite disappointed to arrive and find that this old painted sign in Footscray was gone – the entire row of ~90 year old shops, which were built as part of the bridge over the railway line, were demolished due to regional rail link works needing to replace it with a larger bridge.

Here’s a gallery by Marcus Wong detailing the demolition. Note that it’s in reverse chronological order, so the shops appear around page 2-3.
