Anybody remember a N. E. Sauls Grocery in New Orleans? I found a wonderful 1930's photo of it but can't find its location.

Caption reads "New Orleans Sandwich Shop, 1936. Photographed by Walker Evans for the Farm Security Administration. Library of Congress." No further info.

Oops! Didn't realize...

...that this is the same photo you have in the N.O. Collection - 'cuz it didn't appear in your original post.

But I did find out that Walker Evans was a well-known photo-chronicler of the U.S. in the 1930's.

I would guess it would probably have been around the Dryades St. shopping area.
