The KFC bucket can be seen in the top left corner of the image, this image will no doubt sadden those who currently crave the Chicken and other items that KFC provides.

There are also three houses and one business next to KFC and the Purtills Depot still exists next to Deniliquin Plaza.


The Purtills Depot is now down to concrete, the rail shed is now gone and the goods station is now demolished through if you needed some bricks, they weren’t in short supply.

There are two houses and the business still beside what is now no longer KFC.

There are still two houses and the business still beside what is now Ray White Real Estate (complete with KFC logo’d glass).
