Many of the buildings in Deep Ellum near downtown Dallas have been around since the 1920’s. It’s one of the few neighborhoods in Dallas that hasn’t been torn down and rebuilt completely. Deep Ellum is between heydays. Most of Elm Street is closed, boarded up. There are signs everywhere reminding you that putting graffiti on the on the buildings is a crime.

The club Trees opened again. It’s one of the few bars on Elm Street. Upstairs, near the back between the restrooms and the stairs is this gorgeous, old imperfect brickwork. Outside of Trees, on the other side of Elm, another brick wall is painted over with a mural depicting faces from Deep Ellum’s last glory days.
