Synopsis

Faubourg Treme and the Bayou Road, one of the historically significant areas of early New Orleans, today ranges from North Rampart to North Broad Street and from Canal to St Bernard Avenue. This area, first inhabited and largely developed by affluent gens de couler libres (freed persons of colour) is the focus of the sixth volume of the award-winning New Orleans Architecture series. A section entitled 'Restoration by Analogy', a term used to explain a widely used 19th century building practice that has proven to be an effective method of recapturing the historical integrity of a bygone era. The authors offer specific and documented information on precisely how creole cottages, townhouses, and shotgun homes might be faithfully restored to their original appearances. Throughout the book a detailed history of the area is presented, incorporating much previously unpublished material on the early days of the city. Information is included on the French-Canadian immigrants, military and civil officials from France, and settlers from Biloxi, Dauphin Island, and Mobile.
