Yes Carl, they are abandoned houses. A very interesting area. I was told that the entire area was populated by black people, presumably poor.. Now of course it's a highly desirable and quite expensive real estate that was purchased from them. I was told that there were still some holdouts who would not leave and they have signs on their homes saying "don't ask, we aren't selling" or something similar.Great as black and white, Manuel. These were small houses at some time?
