Remember this one?

25-Year-Old Tooheys Billboard Revealed At Site Of Old Brewery On Parramatta Road Reddit

A familiar sight has been spotted in Sydney this week, with a 25-year-old Tooheys Lite billboard uncovered at a building on Parramatta Road.

The old ad was picked up by Reddit user Boombox-1, who posted a photo of the new addition on the r/Sydney thread.

Remarkably, another Reddit user then unearthed a YouTube video of a bloke driving down Parramatta Road on Friday December 27, 1991, which shows the exact same billboard, albeit a little fresher looking and with a working clock.

 

While the building is now a Kennards Self Storage - and bright orange - it was once Miller's Brewery, a medium-scale Sydney operation that also managed a number of hotels around the city.

According to Scratching Sydney's Surface, Miller's first began brewing beer in 1951 and was bought by Tooheys in 1967; Tooheys shut it down eight years later, although some of the brewery buildings still stand.

A spokesman from Kennards told 104.9 Triple M that the billboard is actually a permanent fixture, with newer, paid-for ads posted on top. 

And when it comes time for those ads to be swapped out? The old Tooheys Lite poster makes an appearance and gives Sydney a little trip down memory lane.
