Music: New Orleans

Newsreel documentary from the 1920's with photography and animations illustrating old New Orleans, the Crescent City, at work and at play.

Duelling oaks. Influences of colonial France and Spain. Iron grille work. The old townhouses surrounding open courts.

New Orleans, the industrial city, where ports and depot junctions distribute throughout, and out from, the heart of America.

Culture shipped to & from the world.

And, of course, Mardi Gras, Jazz age style.
