Bywater Homes, An Historic New Orleans Neighborhood

Bywater Homes and Porches...

A generation knew the area as the “Upper 9th Ward”, but as other parts of the 9th Ward above the Canal farther from the River became developed, a more specific name was needed. Inspired by the local telephone exchangedesignation of Bywater, which fit the neighborhood’s proximity to the River and the Canal, the neighborhood was known as “Bywater” by the 1940s.

The variety of the ateaas housing stock is pretty diverse.  The homes pictured here just stood out from the rest.  There is many more but this caught my cameras eye about a week ago….
