I recently acquired a great map of New Orleans, Louisiana from 1931.

Title:  Map of greater New Orleans, Louisiana

Published by: WM E. Boesch, New Orleans Association of Commerce, creator

Size: 21 inches x 34 inches. (1 map ; 49 x 67 cm., on sheet 61 x 92 cm.)

Across the top of the map the Lake Front Development & Parkways are shown.  The west end is shown along with the Spanish “Fort” and the New Orleans Airport.

Canal Street and the Audubon Park are highlighted perfectly.  The out for the Canal Street Ferry is also highlighted near the different Warfs.  The US Naval Reserve on  The Bernard Highway is also being shown, just across from a proposed national park.

We cannot display this gallery

 

 

This map shows features such as roads, railroads, canals, levees, drainage, land ownership in outlying areas, cemeteries, parks, Parish boundaries, ferry routes, and more. Includes index in margins.

Condition: Very good condition. No cuts, tares, holes, stains, and no repairs. Normal surface wear on corners and little wear on the folds.

This map is also featured in the Harvard Map Collection.
