Clone out the water tower.

Because the sign places the image geographically as would a certain bridge, or a station sign or mountain.

Admittedly, mile post signs can be a bit more esoteric than buildings or bridges, but it does allow the viewer to instantly know where the photo was shot without looking at the caption.

At least that is why I include signs and MPs when I find them.

I would have composed the subject image differently to diminish the silhouette, but I don't think the inclusion of the sign is a detractor.
