Scope Note

This is an artificial collections of photographs sent to the City Archives over the years by various city agencies (including the Department of Streets, the Dept. of Utilities, the Office of the Mayor and the Public Relations Office) and by the Louisiana Department of Highways.


The photographs are numbered and filed sequentially in folders which are filed alphabetically by street name.

The photographs were scanned in greyscale mode at a resolution of 400-600 ppi and saved in TIFF format. The TIFF images were edited to produce greyscale JPEG images of 650 pixel width (or height) for web display. The JPEG images were again edited to produce 150 pixel width (or height) thumbnail images, also for web display.

Below is a list of the streets for which at least one photograph exists. Click on the street names for available images. Descriptions were supplied by the archivists or transcribed from information available on the reverse of the photographs themselves.
