Public Hoardings

Public Hoardings.

None of the Business Agents had found that the objections raised by the various associations and newspapers to the display by the Department of posters had interfered in any way with their efforts to obtain traffic for the Railways. No individual has ever raised the point when approached in connection with prospective business; the opinion was that the Railway had led the way in improving hoarding sings by increasing their artistic merit. In the mater of buildings it was felt that, while judgment should be exercised not to interfere with their architectural beauty, the display of advertisement-signs was not in itself objectional so long as the signs did not offend the aesthetic sense of the public, or spoil the outlook in particular localities.
