Garden District

New Orleans, USA, 7th November 2014.

The first three images are from the morning, probably walking around the Marigny area.  Perhaps this was the day we went to the nursery over the back fence from where we were staying and these are some houses on the way.

The rest of the images are from the mid to late afternoon.  We are wandering down Bourbon St and this is a fine-looking mule drawing a tourist wagon.  The intersection at St Peter’s St is in the background.

A little further along Bourbon St, or more precisely just around the corner to Bienville St (or Calle de Bienville as in the historic sign), this is a Cadillac El Dorado from 1974.  The sign on the far  left is for Arnaud’s Restaurant, one of the most famous of New Orleans Restaurants (and probably not cheap).  Perhaps the car belongs to a diner or the owner of the restaurant.

The rest of the images are from the Garden District, on the other side of Canal St.

Canal St is so-named because there used to be a canal where the street is now and it forms a boundary between the French Quarter and the Anglo-American zone.  All along Canal St is highly commercial these days but further out we have the Garden District, part of what I have called the Anglo-American zone.

Halloween had just passed and signs of it remained on the front steps.
