Ron Bidwell formerly from Sydney has had a major impact on Portland during the past few years.  A signwriter by trade, and now the Secretary of the Portland Development Association, Ron had a vision of revitalising the town by recreating signs of yesteryear to spruce up the town and to create a tourist attraction for visitors.
Visitors to Portland  can now see historic brand names such as:
