"This letterform is a combination of 9 letter 'C's which were once present on shop fronts in Macclesfield town centre during the late 1800s and early 1900s. Some of the buildings still stand but the letterforms are no longer there. They are now typographic ghosts, representing a once golden typographic presence on the cobbled streets of Treacle Town."
