brick house

512 Rives ST
The house associated with the Rives Street store was torn down last week.

The third little pig met a man with a load of bricks, and said:
‘Please, man, give me those bricks to build a house with.’
So the man gave him the bricks, and he built his house with them. So the wolf came, as he did to the other little pigs, and said:
‘Little pig, little pig, let me come in.’
‘No, no, by the hair of my chiny chin chin.’
‘Then I’ll huff, and I’ll puff, and I’ll blow your house in.’
Well, he huffed, and he puffed, and he huffed and he puffed, and he puffed and huffed; but he could not get the house down. When he found that he could not, with all his huffing and puffing, blow the house down, he said:
‘Little pig, I know where there is a nice field of turnips.’

Since then, In addition to farm-laborer and newspaper photographer my occupational incarnations include dishwasher, janitor, retail photo clerk, plumber, HVAC repairman, auto mechanic, CAT scan technologist, computer worker and politico (whatever it takes to buy a camera.) I am on the road to understanding black and white photography.

  1. Yeah… well the wolf in this story had his friends from the City with him and they brought the heavy artillery. That pig’s been barbecued and eaten by now.

    “Affordable housing advocates” tearing down a brick house in decent condition is an unconscionable act, especially a house that has such a long history for that poor beleaguered neighborhood. More of the same condescension and arrogance we’ve now come to expect from this once noble organization. I’m guessing that they’ve got their greedy little eyes on the trailer park adjacent as well.

    They’ve been only too glad for us to carry their water re the RWSA and its impact on the Carlton neighborhood. Now they’ve come to collect the spoils, and Franco gets a little feather for his cap.
