    237-243 South Grand was a formidable structure. Not so formidable that it couldn’t be felled in the late 50s/early 60s.

    Once to the west of the Brousseau, its post-felling absence allowed Walker Evans to get some nifty pix of the Brousseau’s tail end:

    (And Walker, nice framing between the ’60 Plymouth Savoy and the ’59 Ford 300 Tudor. Being a car geek always gives this work that extra dimension of pleasure.)
