The old building that sat on the Northwest corner of Louisa and N. Robertson is gone. We drove by last week when the track hoe (or steamshovel if you will) was hard at work tearing the structure to the ground.

A big dump truck hauled off all the rubbish and now the site is clean.
At one point the building had been a store as the entrance lined up in that peculiar way that all the old shops in the 9th Ward feature: catty corner to the street corner.
However, in recent years the soft glow of crack torches illuminated the inside of the building when we would drive by at night.
