Horsy Chapeau: 1923

New Orleans circa 1923. "View of a street and roofs." Also an ice wagon whose horse is wearing a hat. Bonus points if you can identify the street. Nitrate negative by Arnold Genthe. View full size.

Listen, what's that sound?

I like these early 20s photos of New Orleans and can almost hear the jazz and Dixieland music in the background. Of course, by this time many of the city's jazz greats had moved on to other cities in search of fame and fortune.

Looks like Royal Street

Between Gov Nicholls and Barracks.

Was JFK responsible
