[insert pun about signs here]

Another iconic sign disappeared from Winnipeg's streets yesterday. Thankfully, it was will be saved from destruction by the Neon Factory down the street.

As this photo of Main Street shows, the Starland Theatre's sign (framed) had been around since at least 1935.

Everything about this photo exemplifies a much more humane city, a city that was a much, much larger place than the Winnipeg of today.
