Salvation Army Temple

65-73 Bourke Street, Melbourne, 3000.  



The Salvation Army sign is of historic significance, advertising the organisation's city temple and headquarters. The specific date of the sign's manufacture is unclear, but photographs dating back to the early 1940's clearly show the sign in place.

The Salvation Army neon sign is red in colour and approximately 8 metres in length. Simple in design, it has "THE" written horizontally at the top of the sign and "SALVATION ARMY" written vertically. All letters are composed of unprotected neon tubing. At the base of the sign, horizontal text reads "CITY TEMPLE".

The sign is in good condition. It is not known if it is still in an operable state, and the sign is no longer illuminated.
