Faux famous grandeur

I love the architectural details on the buildings in the city. This faux column piece is on the old Werleins building on Canal Street in New Orleans. Werlein was a noted record publisher (not all of that 'noted' was good -- read the history.) The store is now occupied by the storied and swank Palace Cafe.

I remember as a youth making Werlein's one of my stops on my frequent trips to Canal Street. It was just a big fabulous music store. .
I loved to wonder among all the grand pianos they had on display. The store closed in the beginning of 2003.

ps: Our son Charlie competed in the Houston Marathon this weekend. He started running marathons with his one, a year ago. He has a lot under his belt since then. See the account in my new blog : Southeast Texas Daily Photo.

Steve, like you I love the details to be found on buildings in New Orleans. I used to love just wandering around the French Quarter focusing on the amazing diversity of details just in the wrought-iron.
