A pioneer of shameless self-promotion, A. S. Cruse and his company of drapers made etcetera a reality for shoppers at this Arncliffe location. The recent removal of a large tree has made it once again possible to see this old signage, the likes of which I can’t really see the confusingly named Get It Computer ever putting up.
Before getting it (computer), this location was home to Bomboniere Glamour, a decoration shop that won Rockdale Local Council’s Local Business Christmas Decorations Competition in 2009. Obviously the $1500 prize wasn’t enough to keep the landlord at bay. Perhaps the guy on the roof of Get It Computer is getting his decorations ready for this Xmas. If he’s starting this early, they’re bound to be winners.
If we look back even further into the history of this building, we find a word that needs to come back, stat: EXECUTRIX
