Fading C

Archer City used to be the home of a lot of bookstores…or, rather, one bookstore that was housed in several buildings. The bookstores and their owner – Larry McMurtry – are gone, and the rest of the town seemed more faded than I remembered. And that includes the C on this sign which is more faded than the rest of the word.

Archer City is where McMurtry lived, and where he died, too, last March. In case you wondered.
