About the Photos

Our holdings include hundreds of glass and film negatives/transparencies that we've scanned ourselves; in addition, many other photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs) in the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) They are adjusted, restored and reworked by your webmaster in accordance with his aesthetic sensibilities before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here. All of these images (including "derivative works") are protected by copyright laws of the United States and other jurisdictions and may not be sold, reproduced or otherwise used for commercial purposes without permission.

Possibly at St Charles at Peniston, Lakeside.
Change in direction of St Charles indicates Lakeside, and only a handful of possible intersections (old plantation boundaries where street changes direction slightly to follow river). Although there are many similar houses uptown, I think this is probably at Peniston, where there is presently a later 20c apartment building.

Those palms

Not sure, but they look like the date palms in front of our house when I little. My brother and I would always try to see how high we could climb on the. Worse thing was that those scales would break off just as soon as you got high enough for it to hurt.

[Those look like Mexican fan palms, not date palms. -tterrace]
