Vintage Herter's Fishing



    Isle's downtown fought its way back

  • Hurricane Ike's toxic surge swept into shops, apartments and offices downtown, damaging a significant collection of 19th-century buildings and historic architecture that draws tourists to this historic port city year-round. Many national retailers, such as Chico's, Van Heusen, Bass Shoes and Izod and sandwich shop franchise Quiznos, were gone for good, some blaming a national economy that was tanking just as Ike was inflicting its destruction. By all accounts, there were many tears and a sense of disbelief after Hurricane Ike was finished with downtown. For a brief moment, many looked around at the old buildings and destruction and wondered: Could downtown ever recover. Grief and family returned to the island and saw firsthand what had become of the shop they had owned 18 years downtown. Like Strand Brass, a majority of downtown businesses didn't have flood insurance. Perhaps the most heartbreaking was the condition of the large stuffed bear that had been a Strand Brass fixture for years and with which so many visitors posed for photographs.
