LOST NEW ORLEANS (CAMPENELLA)

$19.95

A nostalgic journey back in time to visit the lost sites of New Orleans in all their grandeur

Organized chronologically, starting with the earliest losses and ending with the latest, this book features much-loved New Orleans insitutions that failed to stand the test of time, such as grand buildings erected in the Victorian era that were too costly to be refurbished, or movie theaters that the age of television made redundant are featured. Alongside the city's iconic and much-missed buildings, it also looks at the industries that have declined or left town. More than 60 losses from 1900 up to the present day include the Old French Opera House; New Orleans Cotton Exchange; Old Masonic Temple; Poydras Market; Chess, Checkers, and Whist Club; Charity Hospital; Olivier Plantation House; Washington Artillery Hall; Union Railroad Depot; New Orleans Public Library; Solari’s Delicatessen; Sugar and Rice Exchange; Godchaux’s; Tulane Stadium; Rivergate Exhibition Hall; Lower Ninth Ward; and Le Beau House.
