(5 1/2 x 3 1/2 In) This is an original vintage "New Orleans America's Most Interesting City" postcard from the 1940s. It shows an etching of the Charm Gate at the Court of Two Sisters, "the romantic rendezvous of New Orleans ~ Finest Creole and French Foods ~ Dining and Dancing ~ Visit our beautiful patio ~ Entrance 613 Royal - 614 Bourbon St."
"GREETINGS. From as romantic a place as you ever ate in - drank in - wrote home about. It's been here a long time, since away back, and the "TWO SISTERS" have long been gone - but the famous "COURT" remains more charming and beautiful than ever. One of the nicest things about the place is- "There's always a table especially for you."
"THE COURT OF TWO SISTERS, in the Heart of the Historic Center of old New Orleans, 613 Royal & 614 Bourbon. The name was gained from the fact that two sisters conducted a fancy and variety store here. The present structure was erected in 1832 on the site of the residence of Sieur E'tienne De Perier, Governor of the French Colonial period, 1725-1733. JIMMIE COOPER, Owner."
