Confuse the foreigners down Hipsley Lane?

An odd combination of signs: are they renaming Lonsdale St, in which case perhaps it should be “Hipster Alley”, or are they just trying to confuse tourists?

[Ed – Got an image of Canberra you want to share with the world? Email it in to images@the-riotact.com. Ironically (of course) CityNews has a story on how the story doesn’t even want the “Lane” on its name anymore. That story also, in my view, explains why Lifeline is crying poor]

Neither, it’s the name of the old Lifeline business before they re-structured, fired the person that put the Hipsley Lane venture together (disappointing), and then closed and relaunched the business as an expensive op shop.

Name of a shop on Lonsdale St however I think the style of sign has been installed in that particular location on purpose.

Is Hipsley Ln the name of the arcade style shops in the old Discount Tyres building or maybe a business/shop?

I can see someone at TAMS snickering to themselves over this.
