This appears to be a salt pillar, probably outside the Myles warehouse at 410 South Front Street, 1909. The man seated in front of the salt seems to be polishing something. This is one of a small group of photographs given to New Orleans Public Library by the Sonoma County (California) Library in 2004. According to staff at the Sonoma library, the photographs were in an album that "belonged to a man named Eugene M. Weaver who lived at one time in Sonoma County."
