Reader Monique wrote in to say: "The Sile sign is gone on Centre Market Place, seemingly overnight. I work on the block in a converted gun shop and was comforted by its sight daily. All of a sudden it is gone, turned into white... nothing."

I wrote about the vanished gun shops of Centre Market Place back in 2011--trust me, it's a fascinating bit of history.
The Sile sign was the last remnant of the gun district. These little things. They matter in the psychogeography of the city.
