Old North in the Morning Light

Update: The house above on the left and in the photo below was destroyed by fire before Thanksgiving of 2022.

The view above featured in one of the earliest t-shirt designs of my friends Jeff and Randy Vines’s over a decade ago. Sadly, as I noted to them recently, that view no longer exists, with the sad demolition of the long-gutted Fourth Baptist.

There are still so many great houses left, such as these typical Second Empire houses that share a party wall together. There are many like this in the neighborhood.

Update: The house below was razed in the round of demolitions in 2019.
