    i know they exist somewhere…funny thing is, nothing at all has changed in the scenes in front of the cabildo, the little alley…the only difference seems to be the model t’s and the fashions. of course so much has happened since 1926, but the feeling remains. i miss home so much….

    Take a pill, Il Duce. Please do NOT be an oppressive, overreactive, preachy authoritarian–it’s very presumptuous.

    Oh, the Tantalizing Glimpses of Mardi Gras floats at the end ….. made this New Orleanian cry.

    FABULOUS POST ! The beginning, especially, showing landmarks that are still here. It’s such a wonderful city… I am blessed to have grown up here.

    The end was a marketing attempt to promote New Orleans as a Port City ( and it still is a huge one) But air travel and the interstate system make this video a quaint relic…. apropos.

    Visit us and share our indomitable Joie de Vivre !!!!!!!!

    Look at all the land that was under NOLA back then. Hpefully nxt year our gret city will vote in a mayor who actually cares for our city and wants to see it become the progressice, growing city that it once was. One day New Orleans will once again be a symbol of greatness and pride for our country.

    In order: Uptown, Audubon Park. St. Roch Cemetery. Jackson Square. French Quarter: St. Peter & Royal. Cabildo (Pirate’s) Alley. [courtyards]. Canal Street. CBD. [Animation] Riverfront & Industrial Canal. Carnival, St. Charles St, Canal Street.

    Great to see. Pretty much everything seen here is still here, except the port is containerized & mechanized now.

    Wish it was still as this video portrays here in NOLA!!
    It seems as though it’s been downhill since the early 70’s. Hopefully the next mayor can turn it around for those of us who have “stuck it out”.

    I love this movie, note in the movie the car passing in (front) of the Cabildo. You don’t see that today unless there is a wedding at the St. louis Cathedral.

    After the text in the movie (The preserves memories of Spain and France) that is actually a german american cemetery called St. Roch. You could see chapel in the movie honor of the St. Roch, the healer.
    Ever in the 1920’s you see people touring the cemeteries.
