Additional Details:
The Pontalba Buildings flank the Place d'Armes, the picturesque center of ancient New Orleans. The illustration shows one of them. They are built over a century ago by the Baroness de Pontalba. For many years they were the fashionable ancestors of the modern apartment houses. Today they are New Orleans nearest approach to tenement houses.
