  • New Orleans, Antoine’s Restaurant

    Long before Katrina, and most likely long after, is Antoine’s, a local landmark. This H.S. Crocker Mirro-Krome card GLR-425 dates from the 1960s, and though it’s aged a bit, it’s still very nice. Grade: 2

    Code: 10119001

    Price: $4.00

    New Orleans, Antoine’s Restaurant
  • New Orleans, St. Louis Hotel, slave block

    A desirable card of an undesirable time. This card appears in several historical reference books. The example we have here is unused, from the early 1900s, C.T. American Art #A-12864. Wonderful condition. Grade: 1

    Code: 10119002

    Price: $8.00

    New Orleans, St. Louis Hotel, slave block
  • New Orleans, Bourbon Street, French Quarter

    It’s not so much what the card shows, as what was done to it. It was mailed from Key West (two stamps) in February 1986 to a Malaysian address, but wound up in Minneapolis–which put the postmark that actually cancelled the stamps. From there it went on to Malaysia. TMI. Grade: 3

    Code: 10119003

    Price: $3.00

    New Orleans, Bourbon Street, French Quarter
  • New Orleans, Bourbon Street, comic

    More semi-comic than comic; the writer (in 1994) gave her unequivocal opinion of pre-Katrina New Orleans. Two 29-cent stamps and a partial Minnesota postmark. One abrasion on lower right corner. Grade: 3

    Code: 10119004

    Price: $2.00

  • New Orleans, Greetings

    Price: $3.00

    New Orleans, aerial view
  • New Orleans, Canal Street at night

    Unused Crocker card GLR-374. Among other things, it tells you that the street is 171 feet across. How about that? Grade: 1

  • Lake Ponchartrain Causeway

    An extraordinary photo in its simplicity. Unused Crocker card GLR-363 from the 1960s. The Causeway was billed as the world’s longest bridge, at 23.83 miles, with eight miles of the bridge out of the sight of land. Grade: 1

    Code: 10119011

    Price: $2.00

    Lake Ponchartrain Causeway
  • Lake Charles, Court House and Confederate Monument

    Rather nice of its kind, apart from some postmark transfer on the front of the card.  Reverse has a full postmark from 1941, and a one-cent stamp.  Good card overall.  Grade: 2

    Code: 10119013

    Price: $2.50

    Many, Hodges Gardens
  • New Orleans, Royal Street Promenade

    Though it looks like someone took a bite out of the upper left edge, that is just one of the endearing little flaws on this card with two serrated edges only, mailed with a 15-cent stamp in 1978 with full New Orleans postmark.  There is some postmark smudging on the front (you can see), along with USPS machine marks.  Grade: 4

    Code: 10119014

    Price: $1.50

    New Orleans, Royal Street Promenade
  • New Orleans, Court of the Two Sisters

    We won’t open a new category for cards that actually say “wish you were here,” but in this case a soldier did say so to his lady friend back home.  The word “Free” is written over the postage area, over which the 1942 postmark duly appears.  A nice representation of restaurant postcards.  Grade: 1

  • Howdy! From Louisiana

    What would the 1950s have been like without Laff-Gram postcards?  And was there ever a Laff-Gram card that actually tied in to the place where it was bought?  Well, we have several, scattered through the site, and hope you enjoy them.  Three of these 200-C unused versions from 1954 are available.  Grades: 1
