Brick Rustling Continues

I checked up on the block of Hebert I had been documenting for the last year. In all seriousness, I did not recognize the north side of the street, as its form has so dramatically changed.The two houses with the mansard roof are gone, with new grass peeking up through the hay on the now vacant lots. The other house has been "dollhoused" with its side walls removed by the thieves.The destruction of the walls of the remaining house is recent, as the interior walls show no evidence of prolonged exposure to the elements. The house on the south side of the street is stuck in its weirdly static state, changing very little since being victimized last year. Read more about my documentation of brick theft here.
