old signage on buildings in Brisbane city
The Capital Rooftop

View the old signs on the tops of Brisbane’s buildings.

Join us for a special Brisbane Open Forgotten Type tour of the city rooftops.

Come and see the architectural treasure hidden in plain sight. Discover building names, “ghost signs” and other text remnants that uncover the hidden history of Brisbane’s heritage buildings.

Our passionate guide, Elliott Bledsoe, is an expert in finding “ghost signs”. He will discuss the social history behind each sign and make it easy for you to enjoy history in a local, relevant, accessible way.

Meet us at the entrance of the old Regent Theatre (the Capital building 155 Queen Street) near the Tourist Info booth.
