Images of the Month Gallery
August 2002
Yeah, it's August--and it's hot. But it's also a good time to go DO something in the French Quarter. There are interesting places to visit in the French Quarter. There are interesting people to watch in the French Quarter. And there are indeed interesting things to do in the French Quarter. And in August there are not as many tourists in the French Quarter as there are in cooler months. All the more space for New Orleanians to be in the French Quarter!

These images of people, places, and activities in the French Quarter during the 1960s and 1970s are from the General Interest--Vieux Carre section of the Louisiana Photograph Collection, the Dewey Bowman Collection, the Mayor Ernest N. Morial Collection, and the A. J. Flaherty Collection. They remind us that there has always been plenty of real life in the French Quarter!
