PH OTO J URNAL I MARIO TAMA Columbus Street, Seventh Ward SEPTEMBER 6, 2005 This man-everybody just called him "Cowboy"-had taken shelter in the home that went up in flames. All he salvaged before escaping was a whiskey bottle and a weed whacker. The landlord, who'd grown up in that house, never saw him again. MARCH 18, 2008 The burned house hasn't yet been rebuilt, but neighborhood life goes on. There's a school across the street; I shot this as kids were getting out at the end of the day.
