NaBloPoMo 05 - FMTSO - Fun Signs

Funny, unusual, strange or spooky signs is the theme for this week at Friday My Town Shoot Out - FMTSO

My city has some really fun signs. Here are some of them.
(click on pics to enlarge).


The Wellington Cable Car is a funicular railway in Wellington, New Zealand between Lambton Quay, the main shopping street, and Kelburn, a suburb in the hills overlooking the central city, rising 120m over a length of 612m. It is widely recognised as a symbol of Wellington.

Wellington Railway Station is the southern terminus of New Zealand's North Island Main Trunk railway, Wairarapa Line and Johnsonville Line. In terms of services and in passenger numbers, it is New Zealand's busiest railway station.



The Buzzy Bee is a popular toy in New Zealand. It resembles a bee with rotating wings that move and make a clicking noise while the toy is pulled along the ground. It is one of the most well-recognised items of Kiwiana. It received a good deal of promotion with the visit of the Prince and Princess of Wales in 1983 with their infant son, Prince William of Wales, who played with a Buzzy Bee.
