OFFICE PHOTO
Re: “Remembering the MB Building,” Inside column by Errol Laborde. June 2009 issue.
Your article on the MB building triggered memories of my late father, John Prinz. The [above] photo of the Maison Blanche building hung in his office; he owned and operated Architectural Wood Manufacturers on Arts Street until his death in 1992 at age 82. The photo was cut from some publication. The second attached photo [not pictured] is the reverse side, dating the printing to 1914. The business was sold by my mother and was still operating until [Hurricane] Katrina. I don’t know if it has remained in operation. My father’s attachment to the photo is most likely related to his involvement in many of the buildings in New Orleans. He produced the specialty millwork for courtrooms, law offices, department stores, mansions, etc., throughout the southeast. Thanks for the great articles. Enjoy.
