Another matter of Time

North Broad Street, New Orleans circa 1930's
photograph by Marion Post Wolcott

North Broad Street , New Orleans 10/2006

I recently discovered the Marion Post Wolcott image from New Orleans , dated around 1935. In the background is a billboard advertising my grandfather's lumber business, Kross Lumber and Wrecking Company. I am named after him, William Kross Greiner. The billboard , or its predecessor, remains today and you can still see Kross on the sign, if you look closely.
