Po Boys


A couple of my editors have more or less asked for the same kinds of images. They’d like to see Americana, Regional Details, Mom and Pop businesses and a sort of general New Orleans run down sensibility. I don’t think they meant for me to put all of those symbols in one picture. But, I did. This is a bar called Vaughn’s, located in the Bywater of New Orleans. The exterior looks like it is about to collapse. I’m not sure when the last Po Boy was served there, but they host some pretty amazing bands including trumpeter Kermit Ruffins and The Bar-B-Que Swingers who started smoking meats outside to cover up the smell of the pot that they were smoking. Or, so the legend says. At any rate, this picture has everything about which my editor’s dream — all in one picture. That’s it. I’m done.
