Traveling Thursdays: Vintage New Orleans, Pt. 2
Welcome to the "Jazz Corner of the South," Jazz, Ltd., conveniently located on Bourbon Street.
Va-va-voom! Who the heck is Sheeba? I have a feeling our photographer has moved to a different club than Jazz, Ltd. to capture this particular shot.
Perhaps Chez Paree? All I know is I wouldn't want to get on the wrong side of Candie Barr, aka The Texas Terror!
Back to some less "seamy" view of New Orleans:
A little alley with an artist, attempting to capture the flavor of New Orleans with her brush and paper:
Here's a closeup of her painting; wonder what happened to it?
How about a nice cup of java at the world famous Café du Monde? I'm not much of a coffee person, but a beignet sounds like heaven right now.
These two are in hog heaven, completely unaware of the photographer capturing their gluttony for all to see some 50 years later.
