Images of the Month Gallery|
The Louisiana Division's "Rare Vertical File" is a collection of ephemeral material dating, for the most part, from the year 1930 and earlier. It is arranged by form of material, with individual items filed numerically within each form category. One of the categories is "Views--Mardi Gras," and we feature a selection of items from that grouping for this month's gallery. All of the items in "Views--Mardi Gras" are clippings from older books, magazines, and newspapers. Not all of them are identified by title or by date, but they are interesting enough, we believe, to deserve a wider audience. HAPPY MARDI GRAS!
