Angel Guard with Empty Eyes
New Orleans, Louisiana
Two empty eyed bronze angels flank the entrance to the Besthoff Memorial. I believe these, easily 8 foot tall, monsters may come to life at dusk when the cemetery is empty.
The Besthoffs were the "B" in K&B Drugstores, now part of the RiteAid chain. Sidney Besthoff and his partner, Gustave Katz, opened their first store on Canal
Street in 1905.
