I took some photos of these plaques along the canal back in August because I thought they were well done and informative. Someone else must have thought they were ripe for the taking, and worth more as scrap. I guess they could just be out for cleaning or something, but I got a strong "ripped off" feeling looking at those empty spaces. Signs of the times.
