This has been bugging me for ages but I only just remembered. You know that Elasto advert at Bambalapitya junction. The sparkly one full of sequin type things.
Has anyone got any idea exactly how long it's been there?
I'm particularly fond of it. It's one of those peculiar Colombo things that makes me feel good.
I remember that it was there in the mid 70s, it was an important landmark for me as it indicated exactly where my Dad would turn right off the Galle Road as we were heading back towards the place we were staying from my Aunt's house in Mount Lavinia.
I've seen it get gradually covered up over the years as the street peddlars have started to use it as part of their merchandising, but it's still there, underneath everything. I'll tell you what, if someone could nick one of the sparkling things and pop it in the post to me I'd be eternally grateful.
But, does anyone know the year it first appeared?
It bugs me.
