Down in New Orleans, June 1969

Two vintage images of New Orleans today, beginning with this June 1969 shot of Toulouse Street.

Anybody care for some international cuisine at Dan's? According to the sign, you enjoy a delicious Chinese Feast or Japanese Imperial Dinner until 2am!

Across the street is The Dungeon, which had recently opened when this photo was taken. It was a private key club until 1988. I can only imagine what went on inside. Probably best that way.

If you're getting overheated today, a nice slice of ice cold watermelon probably sounds good!

I love the image of the fruit stand with the red delivery truck. Now I want some ice cold watermelon.
