A Slice of Mauritania

In Lower Mid-City.

Off in the distance, across the 30-acre site, you can see the S.W. Green Mansion up on wheels at the far left.  On the right, the house Robert Rogers once rented on Palmyra is now an island - complete with the random palm tree that crews left intact for some reason.

Besides Rogers' place, there are only two other houses to be moved - the gray house with brown roof way off in the distance and the purple shotgun just beyond it.

The pump house, with its orange clay tile roof, will also seemingly stay.  If you zoom in, the large Pan-Am building will stay as well - it's being renovated right now, and the numerous sunshades around the outside of the building that make its appearance have largely been removed.

I was in the neighborhood this week and it made me sick to think of the people who have been uprooted from their memories.
