  The Saga of Henke and Pillot  

Many a young man has arrived in Houston seeking to make his way in the world and achieve success.  In the summer of 1872, 21 year-old Henry Henke arrived in Houston. He had spent the previous six years in New Orleans learning all aspects of the grocery business. He had hoped to go into business with a friend in Galveston, but this didn’t work out. Although the area had an abundance of grocery stores, he decided to try his luck in Houston. On September 15, 1872, he established Henke’s New Orleans Store at 811 Congress Avenue across from Market Square. Although he had three male employees, Henke did all of his own hauling, clerking and most of his porter work. The small store was a mere 1,500 square feet, and Henry lived over the store. In 1882, Henke hired young Camille G. Pillot to take charge of the company books of H. Henke & Co.

  Popular Optical Illusions
   These are some of the more popular optical illusions you might find on the internet. What do you think an optical illusion is? If you think that the word “optical” has something to do with eyes, you are already half correct. The word “illusion” is derived from a Latin verb which means “to mock”. When you think about it, illusions trick people into seeing things which are not. The best way to learn about optical illusions is to experience them first hand. Have fun!  Go to illusions
