Magazine Street Store is a Typical Neighborhood Store from Yesterday

Sunday, January 13th, 2013

1382 Magazine Street

     This corner store on the corner of Magazine and Tersichore Street really mearges well into this historic neighborhood store in New Orleans.  I had no idea of what it sold so I looked it up. Below is the description of Canopy and what they do.  Its 1382 Magazine in the New Orleans Garden District.  Most likely the origional owner lived above the store.  Cannot find out much about the origional store.

     CANOPY: habitat for sustainable living, a showroom and store offering environmentally responsible and nontoxic building and design products, has just opened for business at 1382 Magazine Street in the Lower Garden District.

      This was really an unusual opportunity to get some great photos in a foggy setting.  I had 30 minutes between appointments to get a lot in.  It was 230pm in the afternoon this week with the fog banks moving in over the river.  What a great setting Jackson Square in the French Quarter of New Orleans is..Maybe I can get some more and at night it would even be better….

Home in Lower Garden District of New Orleans, The Purple One

       This Magazine Street Home stands out with the purple color and the blooming Bougainvillea in the beginning of January of 2013.  These historic homes in the area are really making a come back in the Lower Garden District.  Most likely built in the 1870’s after this area became part of the City of New Orleans.  So many agricultural details in the area.

Lower Garden District Home turned into New Orleans Condos

           The Lower Garden District of New Orleans has been a hot market segment for condos of late.  The old homes that had been divided up into apartments have become prime properties for conversions into condos.   The area is really a very historic area that is just being discovered in the last several years. The Lower Garden District was once several plantations just on the outside of the City of New Orleans.

Simon Gumbel Tomb Photo leads to another photo of a more famous New Orleans Landmark….

Wednesday, December 26th, 2012

       Cemeteries in New Orleans are especially interest places to visit. Metairie Lawn is one that should be on everyone’s list.  What makes this one a worth while visit is the family tombs and the history behind them.  There are some beautiful works of art sitting out to enjoy but few notice it unless they are on a tour.

      I thought this one looked interesting and to my surprise it was very interesting. The tomb of Simon Gumbel who lived from 1832 to 1909 was a German native who moved  New Orleans in 1864 fro Point Coupee Parish to start a wholesaale notions business.  He became a millionaire and left his fortune to his daughters.

    The rest of the story is  that his daughters donated the Gumbel Memorial Fountain that was dedicated in 1919.  It is the pretty fountain that greets you when you enter Audubon Park from St. Charles Ave.  I knew not the name of the fountain but now I do after looking up the name on the tomb. A great connection. There is probably much more to the story but this is the connection between tomb and the fountain.
