A sign warning of the consequences of entering the former explosives factory in Maribyrnong. The sign would have been created between 1948 and 1966, and appears to be unique, at least along this side of the property. Ernest Edward Backhouse is listed as the manager. There are several more modern signs in the area - ironically in far worse condition than this one - which advise of $1000 fines for trespass, and 6 month imprisonment for shooting across the site. This photo was taken from the Maribyrnong River, on the cruise boat 'Blackbird'. The sign appears to be somewhat difficult to access via land, even from within the factory, which may explain why it has not been updated or removed.
