Rebirth of a city


In an historic city such as New Orleans, some buildings crumble and other survive the insults of time to be reborn in a new use. Evidence of that is show on this wall in the warehouse district -- it's former use as a electric motor, fans and what-have-you center still linger, broken only by window punched into the weathered brick

If walls could talk.

Lots of history in that small frame of photo.... Like Abe, wouldn't we love to hear the stories.

So much history in N.O. I agree with Abe, if walls could only talk.

Very interesting. Most old buildings have windows bricked up or boarded up. This one has new ones added! I love that they left the signage.

Love the mystery of the wall. Nice composition too, Steve.

I think that's really cool. Doesn't it look so much better than most modern crap?
