When my father saw these photos, he said “That intersection [It's maybe a mile from his house.] was all empty until the hurricane. After Katrina, a bunch of closed businesses reopened with people and stock from Mississippi. I think that video store might used to have been over in Gulf Port, somewhere along there, and it got flooded and they brought the stock here. It’s better than what was there. Those mobile home businesses at that intersection all got busted for Internet gambling and prostitution and they were just sitting there with Sheriff’s tape all over them until the hurricane.”

    Yeah…well…I do find it amusing that Katrina refugees gentrified my father’s neighborhood.

    “Might used to have been” over in Gulf Port, where you used to could rent from there.

    Yup, that there is the way my father speaks. He might also would have said “Things be a little different over there in Gulf Port.” Though “Gulf Port” would might be pronounced “Guf Pout”.
