New Orleans Enigma

While walking along a side street near the French Quarter I came upon this interesting ironwork.

This barrier faces the street and prevents anyone from entering or exiting a narrow space between two buildings.

The mysterious letters caught my eye first.

As I stared at it, I tried to decipher the code. That is if it’s actually a code at all.

As I reviewed the photograph an hour after I took it, I was intrigued enough to return to the mysterious place.

It was already nighttime as I retraced my steps. Try as I might, I was unable to find it again.

I’m not sure if it disappeared into thin air or if I was simply careless in my memory.

One of those possibilities seems absolutely impossible.
