While we're on the subject of Special ... what about this Special design?
The story behind it is this:
Samantha ("Sam") Davis (captured below in the 1993 REMO staff photo, second row at the centre, holding the twiggy "M") used to drive the Gaggia in our Darlinghurst Store Café.
Sam was (probably still is) a bower bird ... a collector of things: ornaments, old cardigans, bottle tops, coloured bits of paper ... all manner of eclectica. This pleasing image was lifted from a mysterious sign that fell into a hot toaster and suffered irreparable damage. As to the sign's origins ... Sam thinks that it was salvaged from"some place somewhere between Sydney and Young on the Hay Plain."
