Vintage New Orleans
NOLA in 1956
My father took a solo trip to New Orleans in 1956, driving from where he and my mother (with my older sister, their first, on the way) lived in Hamilton, Ontario Canada through Tennessee into Louisiana.
I came across the photo album recently and decided to scan the old BW pics as is, with no editing. Some are surprisingly clear 65 years later. All pictures taken by my Dad Heinz Wassenberg.

There is one thing I realized after looking at an album full of pictures of buildings, trees, parks, and water - with nary a human being in sight. I didn't know that tendency was inherited. :)
