The prior post, about Lester Carey, mentioned his hand-lettering that has been painted over on a particular defunct store on New Orleans’ MLK.
This was store was a going concern pre-Katrina. Here it is as it looked approximately two years after the flood.
The caption: “I think the proper name of this store is Six Brothers Safe Way Supermarket. It flooded during the storm, about 4 feet of water, it has since been stripped of it’s copper wire and anything else that might have value. It’s slowing returning to the earth waiting to be torn down…..”
