What wonderful (if not sad and depressing!) pictures. I, too, have wandered around these spots wondering what the heck has happened to my town. I have SO many memories attached to several of these places. Things have changed so drastically since I was born here 49 years ago. Nostalgia is bittersweet. Thanks for this wonderful blog. Please keep it coming!

WOW! Thanks for posting! I went to Baton Rouge High School for a year before moving. Grew up in a house near St Joseph's Academy, shopped at that shopping center all the time with my mom... Still love your pictures and blog!! Thanks!

So glad you made time for ABR on your visit! Thanks!! I've missed your frequent posts, but I know it's not easy since you're not here anymore.

I would say BRHS was more for smarty farty kids than their artsy fartsy brethren--although I was pretty much a member of the farty-farty contigent when I was there. I'm very glad they're renovating--it was in desperate need, and it is a great school!

I'm so glad to find your site! I lived in Baton Rouge from 1969 to 1971, then again from '76 through '80, and my dad was there until his death six years ago.

I came here looking for photos of the old Hart Theater, where I worked concessions while going to school in 1970-71. Anyone have any?

Re your shot of the team bus; I noticed in your photos of Robert E Lee High School (where I graduated in 1970) that the school sign said Patriots. When I was there they were the Lee High Rebels. Perhaps their bus?

I didn't recognize BR ... literally got lost there ... when I went back to deal with my dad's house. So much change.

I would love to see pics of the Hart, if anyone has any; particularly of the old mural in the lobby.

What a shame that this town is falling into shambles. Hopefully someone will come along soon to rejuvenate it.

You ask if anyone remembers The Saints? Well most definitely so. I was rooting for them a few years ago when they won the Superbowl. What a sweet victory.

I went to BRMHS! It's closed for renovation right now. Lee High was closed down and so the BRMHS kids temporarily use the old Lee High buildings. My grandmother graduated from BRHS in 1952! it was built back in the 20s. It was so beautiful but became really shabby. I remember in one classroom you could put your hand through a hole in the wall and touch the tree branch outside! And it was 3 floors but you weren't allowed to the top floor because of the asbestos. That's not all either... Lead paint etc. I'm so glad that they're finally doing something to save it.

There are many other techniques that resources could be used in this condition. I preferred fabricated venture is a practice between BR and NOLA. This particular venture appeal to funds.

Try making a trip back to East State Street and see the huge improvements. Maybe you will have a better opinion of the area.
