Probably 1911

14-story Whitney National Bank Building, 228 St Charles seen under construction in 1911

Not much earlier than 1910

Louisiana Supreme Court building (large, tall, white stone Beaux Arts structure in middle of Quarter) opened in 1910, main construction finished 1909. A whole block of early 19c buildings was razed to build this out-of-place structure. Supreme court moved out in 1958 as building was crumbling. The Wildlife and Fisheries Commision was last occupant until early 1980s (locals still call it "The Wildlife and Fisheries Building)." After many years vacancy, the building was totally renovated and the Supreme Court is back there since 2004.

Still standing

The Hotel Grunewald which became the Roosevelt which became the Fairmont and is now the Roosevelt again. The Grunewald was almost a grownup when this photo was taken, having opened in 1893.

The Maison Blanch building is still there and it's now a Ritz Carlton.


Thanks for the great panoramic Dave, haven't seen one of these in a while. Any chance of a Shorpy movie coming soon?

Oh! We Got Trouble!

Right here in River City, I mean trouble, that starts with T and rhymes with P and that stands for POOL! Trouble, trouble, trouble.

Sorry, could not resist that
