We’ve got a couple of pictures for you today. The first is of the Little Top and comes from Erica Koen which I have put up on the main Entertainment page because there is already quite a bit of stuff on that page about it.
The next picture is from Malcolm Wesson and is of a sign many many recognise:
I have attached a photograph of the old animated neon sign that hung outside the Colombo Tea & Coffee shop in West Street.
I loved it as a child as the elephant would stand on the monkey’s tail causing him to jump. It’s now in the old Colombo Tea & Coffee warehouse in Gale Street as part of a coffee shop known as The Factory Café. Great place.
Colombo Tea and Coffee were also famous for refusing to sell when land was being acquired for the complex known as Broadwalk. The new building had to be constructed around the coffee shop leaving it intact.
