St. Charles Ave, Yellow and Green Cottage...


As you move down St. Charles Ave towards Carrollton Ave. you are actually moving along a time line of newer and newer homes.  This area was not always part of New Orleans and was developed at a later date than the homes on the Avenue closer to town.  Its the 1890’s to the 1910’s.  The variety is even greater as you begin to have more Victorian Homes, Country Cottages and much more.

The Carrollton Area wa annexed to New Orleans in 1874 but maintained its own identity for much longer with its own shopping areas with a more country feel.  The common thread was the streetcar line that runs along Carrollton Ave. after turning off St. Charles.

Moving down the rails, Photos get a little harder to take….

    My idea was to see how many nice photos I could take while riding the St. Charles Ave. Streetcar line last week.  It became much harder than I thought to take photos while we are moving along at a nice clip to view but much more difficult to take photos. I did get a lot of trees and some out of focus ones.  The idea was great but a good time was had.
