ow, oh wow, oh wow.
This is another picture that’s been reworked and cropped. What I didn’t notice until I enlarged it are some of the details.
The upstairs windows are new, if new means chopped out of the wall in the late 1800s.
How do I know?
Aside from the sloppy finishing job of those windows, my processing sharpened and brought out everything. There are letters all over that wall advertising something. They are part of a so-called ghost sign.
I’d have to do some research to know what this building was in the before times. Today, the upstairs is an apartment, maybe two. Downstairs is where a pizza place called The Louisiana Pizza Kitchen lives.
The pizza place was one of a couple of restaurants opened in the early days after Hurricane Katrina blew through. Most people went there for lunch because pizza. We could take it to go.
Now I’m interested. A little research is in order.
Maybe I’ll get to photograph from the inside out.
