An iconic part of Maldon.

The now restored Rego sign is advertising a brand which has now long passed. Until a couple of year ago the sign had faded despite at least one earlier restoration in the 1970s.

The sign is situated on the side of a former bakery that dates back to 1859 called the Scotch Pie House. It is located on the corner of Main Street and Templeton Street.
