Tenement Fantasia

New Orleans architect Allison Owen (1869-1951) designed this simple frame tenement structure. Known for his Emlah Court Building (3823 St. Charles Avenue, 1912) and Criminal Courts Building (2700 Tulane Avenue, 1929), Owen enjoyed a long and prosperous career. The Southeastern Architectural Archive retains puckish drawings from Owen's student days at Tulane University, as well as project sketches such as this undated Queen Anne duplex.
