Body Gear

Body Gear

This sign is just down the street from Metro Central YMCA. The shop it advertises is long gone; I believe it sold sports supplements. Now the panels are gradually decaying and one is completely missing.

The sign is also next door to the Coroner’s Court building, where mysterious deaths are investigated. In a way, this street is all about bodies, living and deceased, and the ravaged letters of Body Gear speak unexpectedly of the joys and vulnerabilities of being in the flesh.
