On the subject of noticing things- Notice the card bit off the front of a 13 amp plug and the Embassy fag coupon at the bottom o' the fountain :oD

I remember in, I suppose, the early 80s seeing one of these which someone must have acquired as a souvenir. I think it may have been up the side of what is now the Chinese restaurant in Junction Road. I'm also starting to wonder if the late Bob Mackay had one outside his house in Pipersquoy Road, but I'm not sure.
