Canal Street Looking West - New Orleans, LA - Postcard, c. 1930s


(5 1/2 x 3 1/2 In) This is an original vintage Louisiana News Company, Metropolitan linen postcard from the 1930s. It shows a view looking west on Canal Street in New Orleans, Louisiana.

"CANAL STREET, 170 feet wide, one of the widest central business thoroughfares in the world, got its name from the fact that in olden days a big drainage canal ran down the center od it, and it marked the upper limits of the old city two centuries ago, with the ramparts along the edge of the canal and forts as terminals.", reads the description printed on the back. 

The postcard is unused and is in VERY GOOD condition, wear at the edges, blunted cornre tips.
