With the steamboats passing by on the Mississippi River with their massive waterwheels you almost feel as though you are in a hot air balloon passing over the "Big Easy" in this 1851 Old Map of New Orleans.
While many German and Irish immigrants moved to the city of New Orleans in the 1830s and 1840s, French speakers still made up a large portion of the population in 1851. The French were either immigrants themselves or they were the descendants of the original colonists who settled "La Nouvelle-Orléans". The Old Map of New Orleans provides a view of the city at this time.
The Old Map of New Orleans gives a view of the city from the south looking northwards and brings to mind the noise and activity of this port city, which still remains as one of its finest attractions today.
If you love Mardi Gras, "N'awlins" is the place to be. If you can't be there, include the Old Map of New Orleans as part of your collection as a reminder to visit "NOLA" as soon as you can!
