Sarah Lou Cafe Owner Dies

I just happened to overhear this on the news, and it helped me learn a little more about the history of the august Sarah Lou Cafe that I had photographed two summers ago. James Owens, Jr. had owned and operated the restaurant for thirty years. Sadly the storefront now sits empty; perhaps one day someone will resurrect Jimmy and his legacy. The Preservation Research Office reports that the building has suffered from years of abandonment.
