Kogarah, St George Hospital

The Australian flag flies at St George Hospital in the southern suburb of Kogarah. The building is not remarkable but I was fascinated by this retro sign, with the raised lettering and logo, on this refurbished building facing Belgrave Street. I've been spending some time here recently for physiotherapy to mobilise my leg again, following an accident a couple of months ago.

  1. Lo primero que tu pierna esté muy bien en muy poco tiempo. Poder caminar para poder seguir disfrutando de la fotografía, si :)

    Veo tu gusto por enseñas, así las llamo yo, te lleva a encontrarlas por doquier. Si, cuando uno tiene verdadero interés por algo se le presenta.

    Buena luz y contraste en la imagen.
    Un cordial saludo

  2. I love the way fonts are used in an urban landscape. Fonts and logos. Great fun to see how they vary through the decades.

  3. Thanks, haideé. My leg is much better now and I'll soon be walking again without my crutches. :)

    Julie, it certainly is interesting how styles of fonts and logos change through the time.

  4. Awesome find. It's hard to find a logo with the name of the hospital like this one. Hope you are doing okay now. ^_^

    I like how the letters cast shadows on the brick and how you caught the flag mid-wave!

    Glad to hear that you are on the mend :-)

  11. Your glad is so beautiful flying there in the breeze. And I adore the street light. It is precious. Hope your PT is helping your leg. I go to PT a lot for my back. Do not know what I would do without my adorable therapist. genie

  12. I rather like the building. And fonts are something I'd never even know what they were, never mind have a discussion about them. It keeps me learning and makes life interesting.
    I hope you continue to improve.

  14. Great capture of the flag. I had my appendix removed there back in the 50's when it was the closest hospital to Loftus.

  15. diane b, even now, Loftus is certainly quite a trip from Kogarah.

  16. I like the 3D effect of the letters and shadows - it almost looks like the letters themselves may be tilted down to be more easily read from the street?

  17. More beautiful blue skies! Terrific capture/composition as always, Jim! Beautiful flag! So glad to hear that your leg is better and that you'll be able to walk soon without the crutches! Enjoy your weekend!

  18. I, too love the art deco like font on the name
    (and for a brief moment, I was worried when you said you were spending time there when I noticed the 'cancer care')

  19. Lesley, St George is a district hospital with a wide range of health services and there are actually a few more directional signs below that one. I suffered a fractured leg and arm after an accident but things are slowly getting back on track now. :)
