Surprised it hasn't been recreated. A true iconic image. There has been talk of it in the past but nothing happened.

i'm sure a few years ago there was a thread on this and somebody had the old sign or new where it was but it was in a bad state of repair it would be good to see it back i wonder when it was actually made.

The Gorgie Stand sign is the perfect spot for it.

You are right. Nobody has joined JKB since the thread you have seen. How dare anybody rehash a topic from a tweet made today and therefore bringing it back to people's attention.

Nice piece of nostalgia for some, but it would look pretty horrific now.

 

Good one for the museum if it can be found/refurbished.

I still think it would look good on the back of the Gorgie Stand even if it was a mural

A mural including the sign would be a good idea, was there not meant to be a mural when the new stand was built?

There was, but not all the homeowners agreed, so I understand it is not happening.

Fabricate new steel supports onto the existing fencing/gates already there. Attach sign to new supports. Job done 👍🏼

They need to get the big cracks in their tenement flats fixed first that were caused by us building the stand.

 

Mind greenfanny over on .nugget kept telling them all about it after his 'wee wanders past'.

Not if we're still planning on filling in the corners and installing the big screens.

Aye but they had to remove it as they ran out of crayons.

Nah I think theirs was just a bog standard Hibernian FC written on the bricks above the turnstyles of their old stand. Or maybe it said Easter Road, cannae mind now.

 

Here we go...

The Capital Decorators sign we had on the gable of the old Shed roof looked better than that.

I used to park my car here when I lived at 164 Gorgie Road overlooking the ground. That sign always made me feel proud every time i passed the entrance.

I think it would just look naff and incredibly out of place, but that's just because I don't have a nostalgic outlook on it.  

 

It would, however look great as part of a mural on the ends of the houses, or somewhere in the stadium, if that idea can ever get back on track!

Tremendous and, as usual with all things Hearts v Hibs, it puts Hibs pishy wee effort firmly into it's shadow.

I think an issue us that old farts like me, who have fond memories of it, are declining in number every day. It was demolished 25 years ago and in 10 years nobody under 45 will have any memory of it.
