Weekly photo challenge: Signs

Cook Nullabor PlainsThe year was 1974, I was traveling on the Indian Pacific from Perth, Western Australia to Port Augusta in South Australia. This sign really took my fancy. Cook is tiny little community situated on the Nullabor Plains. Their hospital was obviously in dire straights if they had to advertise for patients. Just if you can’t read it, it says…”If you are crook, come to Cook. Our hospital needs your help, get sick.”

As you can tell by the pattern on the photo it has been tucked away in an old album for nearly forty years.
