Vintage Photo Friday - New Orleans

Pontalba Apartments, pictured in 1930s

Yesterday, as we strolled around the French Quarter in New Orleans, we came upon the Pontalba Apartments.  We were lucky enough to stay here in the early 1990's.  Built in the 1840s, this is the oldest continuously rented apartment building in the United States.  It's famous and used in so many films, TV shows and documentaries about the French Quarter.  Here's a bit of history on this recognizable building.

It is fun being in the French Quarter, even though it's tourist season and the place is teeming with 'em (including us).  There are so many interesting curiosity shops, restaurants, sidewalk entertainers and historic sights to see!
Have a wonderful weekend, my friends.  I know we will!
