A very odd observation from downtown Civic.
A new “street sign” has appeared at the intersection of Hobart Place and London Circuit in Civic. The sign – in a format completely identical to other street signs in Civic – simply, and enigmatically, reads: “Drinking Fountain”.
As it is identical to other street signs, including the one above it on the pole which reads “Hobart Place” (pointing in the wrong direction, albeit!), it seems to suggest that this street is now also called Drinking Fountain!
There is no actual drinking fountain in Hobart Place that I am aware of; and one wouldn’t have thought a drinking fountain was deserving of a street sign all to itself – there are, after all, probably quite a few drinking fountains around, and these sort of street signs are more tailored towards motorists, I would have thought, who are not so likely to jump out of their vehicles and grab a drink at a bubbler.
It is extremely puzzling.
Any thoughts/explanations/solutions? Can someone take a photo of it, perhaps, and upload it?
