At a chance sit-together with a woman and her husband we’d seen on occasion at our favorite restaurant (Michelle’s) on Loyola in Kenner, it turned out they both grew up in Faubourg St. John. They shared stories about how joyful it was to be able to walk from Broad to St. Charles Avenue, even at night, without fear that any freedoms would lost. They cherished the smells and sounds of walking through the old K&B on Broad (photo above). It’s great to see the building housing a pharmacy again. Check out the old cars beside the old K&B, way back when.
You may remember the old joke… If Katz died, who would be Besthoff? …..his wife
