Oh man, this one is a great photo. Click on it for a larger version to see what New Orleans looked like back in 1910. We posted quite a few great photos of The Big Easy last week, so check those out too.

Circa 1910. “New Orleans and the Mississippi River from Grunewald.” A bird’s eye view of Canal Street from the Grunewald Hotel. Merchants here include Godchaux’s music store as well as the big Godchaux’s department store farther down the street, D.H. Holmes Co., B. Cohn Dry Goods, Marks Isaacs Co. and a One-Cent Vaudeville theater. And if all this shopping has made you thirsty: Drink Chattanooga Beer. 8×10 glass negative, Detroit Publishing Co.
