French Quarter

This area of New Orleans is such a time capsule! It has hardly changed at all.

And the clock strikes ...

High Noon.

Getting the lay of the land

Interesting that Mr. Jackson didn't call out the name of the street in his caption. Maybe to prevent confusion?

Since the Cathedral faces the Mississippi across (Andrew) Jackson Square, you are seeing the back of it. The street that dead-ends behind the Cathedral is Orleans Street.

[As reflected by the title of this post! - Dave]

Sorry Dave, perhaps it was the absence of a pun-less title that threw me off. :^)
