Looking objectively at the Coke sign situation, I find it strange that people revere something which causes so much ill health. This was brought strongly to my attention when I approached a person of authority and respect in the community to enquire about the Australian artwork which is behind the Coke sign. They suddenly turned emotional and all they could say was "Is the Coke sign coming back?!!"
( Lol I see autocorrect has changed all my c's into capitals !)

Mmm, tastes like capitalism and consumerism.

P.nix, I simply don't connect the two. You should not interpret my desire to retain the sign as an endorsement of the product in any way. I just think it's an interesting historical artifact that recalls a time gone by.

The E disappeared for a day or two, back to normal this evening.

Looks superb

Apparently it is a controllable neon sign - not a digital screen - so it will always show Enjoy Coca Cola.
But it will remain red and white except for special occasions

The letters of the old sign, know as the Gateway to the Cross, were auctioned on eBay to collectors all over the world,
raising more than $100,000 for The Wayside Chapel.

One hell of a bright sign ! International Tower 3, facing city.
Just before the storm.

Coca-Cola cans and iconic Sydney billboard to change to rainbow colours in support of marriage equality

THEY’VE been red since before anyone can remember. But the famous red Coca-Cola can is about to get shaken up



September 12, 2017
by Benedict Brook

THEY’VE been red since before anyone can remember. But the famous red Coca-Cola can will soon get an added splash of colour.

Sydney’s iconic Kings Cross Coke sign is changing, too, with the red hue replaced by a rainbow from 6pm on Tuesday night.

The reason for getting rid of the red in favour of the rainbow is because the drinks giant is very publicly getting behind the ‘yes’ campaign for same-sex marriage.

Suncorp signage has been removed from 259 George St after their move to King St Wharf. Not sure that they've found a new anchor tenant yet so might be a while before we see new signage on this one.

Would be epic if Qantas were to buy the rights but I know that's wildly unrealistic!
