Blue Plate Artist Lofts, Blue Plate Mayonnaise was Made Here.

       The Blue Plate factory and offices were built in 1941 and is very distinctive in the design.  The large windows and rounded corners are distinctive.  Located at 1315 S. Jefferson Davis it is now 72 mixed income apartments for artist. 

    The building was home to Reily Foods whose more noteworthly brands were Blue Plate, La Martinique Salad Dressings, CDM Coffee, Tiger Sauce and Luzianne Tea.  They had many other brands as well.  New Orleans per capita is way up on the consuption of mayonnaise and ice tea.  Whe I was in the grocery business these brands would always out sell the National Brands.
