There's an effort in this area to restore a number of these building-side murals; very commonly Coca-Cola ads.

What was Once? by Andrew Priest, on Flickr

It is interesting what turns up in a Google search. This building, 140 South Street, White Gum Valley, Western Australia was at some point in its life an archival record shop and residence. Sadly, it does not warrant heritage listing and so may well face the wrath of the redeveloper.6

This one was definitely tongue in cheek.
It was located beneath a road bridge over the River Wye, with dozens of pigeons (correct spelling) roosting beneath and cra**ing all over the pedestrians on the adjacent footpath.

Having struggled up a long steep hill, we were quietly resting and munching away on our sandwiches, sat in a churchyard in the depths of rural Carmarthenshire, when a local yokel strolled up to us dragging his reluctant dog behind him.
Being severely deaf, I couldn't either hear what he was saying or decipher his strange Welsh accent, so merely nodded away while he told some tales.
After he'd departed, my wife related to me that the "authorities" wanted to flood the whole valley (laid out impressively before us) and having resisted it, the locals had erected a memorial sign in the village at the bottom of the hill.
Once we'd completed our well-earned alfresco lunch, we free-wheeled down the hill to be presented with this sign.

Now, to 99.999999999999 per cent of the population of Britain, never mind the world of mu-43, this in itself is utterly incomprehensible.
So let me try and enlighten you.
Translated into English, it means "Remember Llangyndeyrn" with the second word simply being the name of the village.
It's a general reference to what has become one of the national symbols of Wales and is in imitation of "Cofiwch Dryweryn", which is a similar sign painted on a roadside wall in mid-Wales which refers to the compulsory eviction of the village of Capel Celyn, so the valley could be flooded by the Treweryn Reservoir to provide water for Liverpool.
The original sign was painted in 1963 and has been vandalised and painted over numerous times, but has recently been accepted as a valuable part of Welsh history and the oppression of its residents by the British Government.
It's now synonymous with Welsh independence and free speech and has become an icon itself, with the signage repeated throughout Britain and indeed all over the world and generating a small industry selling books, photos and other memorabilia.

Paynesville Cemetery, Western Australia by Andrew Priest, on Flickr

Paynesville Cemetery is located approximately 77km East of Mount Magnet. There are only five burials in the cemetery and one headstone.

Gold was discovered in this area in early 1898 by Tom Payne and Arthur Waldeck, and by April 1898 the place had been inspected by a surveyor and a plan of subdivision prepared. It was at first referred to as ‘Paynton’, and ‘East Mount Magnet’ and some records record the locality as “Fords” after another prospector.

By April 1899 local prospectors were using the name Paynesville, and it was with this name that the townsite was gazetted in 1900. It is believed to be named after Tom Payne. The railway from Mount Magnet to Black Range, passing through Paynesville, was opened in 1910.
