Re: A photo sent to me by a friend

if you were to stand at this location today, the Crescent City Connection, formerly the Greater New Orleans Bridge, would be right behind you.  You're looking geographically almost directly south, which at this point is upriver.  At the time of this photo, the T&P passenger station would be to your right and a few blocks away, and the L&N passenger station would be several blocks behind you, at the foot of Canal.  You're at the foot of the warehouse district, and the main tracks would be on the other side of those warehouses.  If you looked across the river you might be able to see the T&NO trackage on the Algiers side.
