This photograph shows the Vieux Carre, ca. 1947. A parade is passing on North Rampart Street (note the Saenger Theatre at bottom center and the rear of the Southern Railway Terminal just to its left). This is one of a number of aerial photographs donated to New Orleans Public Library in 1999 by Richard B. Taylor of Las Vegas. While on a business trip to the city Mr. Taylor chartered a private plane for a aerial tour; he shot the photographs from that plane.
