His Name's Newton. He sells (Real Estate).

58 Atherton Road, Oakleigh, 3166.  



The T.G. Newton & Co. neons are both eye-catching and amusing. With an unrivalled air of confidence, the two signs (one on each corner of the shop) boldly proclaim "His name's Newton. He sells". Presumably this aroused more interest in what Newton sold than emphasising his success. The acrylic lightbox wrap-around was a later addition to the sign, designed to complete the sentence "His name's Newton. He sells real estate".

The signs are a basic composition of unprotected neon; "NEWTON" is in red neon and the rest is in green.

The age of this sign is uncertain, but is likely to date from the 1960's when the real estate business moved to the current premises.
