Family Photos on the Wall in the Teles Living Room

Bedroom in New House in Pompano Beach, Florida

This photograph shows the bedroom in Susan Glazer's new house in Pompano Beach, FL. Susan moved to Florida after Katrina and decided not to return to New Orleans. The artwork and photographs above her bed were salvaged from her home on Cameo Street in New Orleans. They were collected by her daughter, Katy, on a trip back to New Orleans to clean out the house. They were then lovingly restored by a framing company in Florida.
