A little bit of New Orleans history today. This is a picture I took several years ago inside a parking garage that's attached to One Canal Place.
The B. Rosenberg and Sons building was in high gear in the first decade of the 20th Century. This building housed Rex Shoes
Shoes were made by hand during this time.
I'm pretty sure they lasted a longer time compared to the mass produced shoes of today.
