Embroidered Balconies. Characteristic of the architecture of New Orleans' Vieux Carre (French Quarter) is the myriad patterns in wrought and cast iron, giving that section its atmosphere of old France and Old Spain. This old home, on the corner of St. Peters and Royal Streets, was built about 1835 by Jean Baptiste Lafranche, a wealthy sugar planter, and is an excellent specimen. The ironwork design is entwined oak leaves and acorns.
