New Orleans Streetcar.

We headed off on a streetcar intending to visit the aquarium.  The streetcars are a delight in New Orleans though they are slow and can break down.  The aquarium was closed so we set out to visit some galleries in the Arts District, which was probably a much better choice anyway.

Here are some people waiting as a freight train goes past, with probably hundreds of cars.

The building is being replaced but the facade, presumably heritage protected, is to stay.

What was once a grand old building is now dwarfed by glass towers.

Confederate Memorial Hall.  Here we see a cannon used by participants of the civil war who gave their lives in 1865 fighting for slavery. There are few memorials for the emancipation of the slaves in the South. When you consider who might raise the funds it’s easy to see why.

This looks like a bizarre art installation but it appears to be an even more bizarre commercial air conditioning installation.
