Da Steamboat Capitol!

February 20 2008, 10:03 AM 

I never saw it before, but it was one of my mother's favorite analogies: "Toin off summa dese lites if ya not usin nem. Dis place is lit up lahk da Steamboat Capitol."

YouTube Videos

February 20 2008, 10:26 PM 

Go to http://www.youtube.com/ Enter whatever you're looking for in the search feature. If you enter "New Orleans" there are more videos like this one. Some from 50s, 60s, etc.

That was beautiful! I cried

February 20 2008, 3:37 PM 

just looking at the beauty that was once New Orleans. There were many aspects of 1940 that I wish had never changed. Seeing the lighted letters of the Saenger sign tears me up for I fear it will never be back. Damn Katrina!

Thanks for putting the video up, CopCop.

February 20 2008, 10:06 PM 

It plays every 2 minutes and stops. I am trying to be patient but forget it. I don't understand why these videos do this.

" You can go here and paste in the youtube URL and save it as a .flv file on your PC. Flash player will pay .flv but I found a CODEC pack for Windows Media Player that allows Media Player to play any media file.

Some really old footage

February 26 2008, 5:29 PM 

For anyone who hasn't seen it, this silent reel from the '20s (particularly the first half) is really evocative...

"The city is noted for its outdoor restaurants."

I've never thought about it. (Before air conditioning, maybe?)

Ah, for a time machine.

I love it that we each seem to have our own little bit of N.O. history in our families.

Gorgeous

Is it a paddlewheel? The river must have been quite a sight in its heyday!

Just bought a beautiful book of black-and-white photographs spanning the years from 1870 to 1969:
