With all the destruction and loss in New Orleans it was nice to see these 2 pieces of History sitting next to each other in the salvage yard.
Hopefully they will stay here in New Orleans a find another use.
I found this tucked into one of the drawers.
Some schools will be reduced to rubble and bits and pieces there is a lot of hope that more can be saved, Francine Stock has been doing some incredible work. Last week she and Alan from thinknola went to California to present at the Net Squared Conference. They presented a strong case for the need for meaningful citizen owned recovery mapping.
A friend of mine told me that after World War Two many towns in Germany hired City employees to photograph and record every building and created a historical archive of the rebuilding. That kind of backward looking sounds so forward thinking right now.
