Synopsis

Explore New Orleans in over 230 colorful postcards published during the first half of the 20th Century. These hand-tinted photographs and the accompanying text help illuminate this fascinating city, from its early agricultural and trade port origins, through its elaborate religious and riotous cultural heritage. Wonderful imagery of popular and historically significant sites accompanies interesting essays and trivia tidbits that shed light on one of North America's most colorful cities. Visit charming gardens, private courtyards, and balconies dripping in iron lacework. Tour scenic parks and revel in ornate, grand architecture. Read the tales of pirates, a bloody slave revolt, political duels settled with swords, and beautiful burial vaults built to efficiently recycle the remains of loved ones. Guidelines for dating and current market values for these cards make this a wonderful reference for anyone interested in collecting these historic treasures. The imagery makes this a nostalgic journey for anyone fond of this great city, and an invaluable reference for New Orleans historians.
