Jackson Square

It looks sadly as if the worst-case scenario is happening in slow motion. New Orleans will be rebuilt, of course, but how, and maybe even where, and with what technologies… and what it will look like, a watery phoenix risen from the delta in ten years or twenty… well, who knows? It won’t be the city it was, last weekend, last decade, the century before.

But this is what it looked like, once. I offer it as something to hold in memory against the images of the last two days. (I will go on posting one of my antique postcards every other day or so)
