Description

The Card Castle is a card and gift shop in the Old Brisbane Arcade in the Tasmanian city of Launceston. The two signs for the store feature a castle. Whilst one provides merely the outline of a castle wall and tower with crenelated parapets, the other sign features a much more detailed castle image. The castle is surrounded by a moat and entered over a draw-bridge. It has extensive crenellation, two corner towers, and pointed arch windows.
