My White Mules

I use Wells Lamont White Mule Gloves just like the ones hanging above the feed store door, though I don't use them as vigorously as when I was working on my PhD (post hole degree) in East Texas.

Fresh Drugs

But are they typhoid-free?

Pharm Fresh

Just can't get enough of those fresh drugs and toilet articles!

Cool Car

That 1933 or '34 Ford Sedan Delivery would make a great hot rod.

French Market

The French Market was remodeled in 1936, 1975, and just completed another remodel last year.

Down on Decatur Street

Decatur Street, French Quarter, above St. Philip Street, looking downriver. If the second truck wasn't there, the Morning Call Cafe could be seen at the center.

Most of the architecture around here is still the same. The "Red Stores" building seen at the right was demolished by the WPA and replaced by a fish market not long after this photo. A duplicate Red Stores Building was re-erected in the 1970s. For some reason the new one is a couple of yards out of alignment from the original footprint of the first one-- annoying if you're trying to recreate a historic photographic view.
