"Here We GEAUX!"
The house from 222-24 S. Rocheblave crosses the Broad Street bridge over I-10, with the Super Dome off in the background, as it heads to a new location in the greater Central City area. It was quite a sight!
Five houses moved off-site today, which is more than usual. There were demolitions, too.
Overall, it was probably the busiest day I've ever experienced Inside the Footprint.
More photos to come.
UPDATE: Here are some more photos of the same house as it made its way out of the neighborhood.
ADDED: Here are some photos from late in the day as the house finally reached its new lot at 3626 Jackson Avenue. A neighbor with a newly renovated house expressed some surprise at finding a new home rolling in next door, but it seemed things were working out as I left the site near 6 p.m.
