Carondelet Stone Houses 003

Update: Destroyed by fire on the evening of August 17, 2020.

I was out in Carondelet east of Broadway doing some photography for my recent article about stone houses, when I cam upon this oddity. Wood frame, covered in a myriad of building materials, can we honestly believe that this house will be occupied again? It’s a shame that the wealth of history imbued in this building will be gone one day.
