The Dixie Gates - Gone

The elaborate gate on Tulane Avenue has disappeared.

Here's a photo from Michelle Kimball at the Preservation Resource Center, which gives an impression of the distinctive metalwork that made up the gates.

It's not clear what happened to the gates.  There's a chance the owners may have removed them preemptively, as the state was threatening to expropriate the brewery yesterday.


Here's photographic proof from a reliable source that the gates were already gone as of this past Saturday, November 27, 2010:

Here's a closeup of the gate, which was a thing of beauty. Here's hoping someone has them safe somewhere with intentions of restoration.
