Formerly 20 signs, now reduced to 12 on account of my failure to upload the images instead of hit-linking them. I was young.

 

 

 

ACDC Lane is a street in Melbourne, Victoria. The street was formerly called Corporation Lane, but was renamed on 1 October 2004 as a tribute to Australian rock band AC/DC. The Melbourne City Council’s vote to rename the street was unanimous. The trademark lightning bolt or slash (“/”) used to separate the AC and the DC in the band’s name contravened the naming policy of the Office of the Registrar of Geographic Names, so the punctuation was omitted on the street sign.
