Palms Aplenty: 1910

Palms Aplenty: 1910

Circa 1910. "St. Charles Avenue, New Orleans, Louisiana." 8x10 inch dry plate glass negative, Detroit Publishing Company. View full size.

 

Location?

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]
