Mayor Robert S. Maestri Photographs
Photo 44

August 17, 1937
Celebration of Maestri's first anniversary in office, City Hall
Caption on reverse of photo reads: "The Best Congratulations of Them All--Practically all of New Orleans paid tribute yesterday to Mayor Robert Sidney Maestri upon the start of his second year in office, but the best tribute of all, he said, was the kiss of his aged mother, Mrs. Angele Maestri, during the afternoon. She came to see her son near the close of the celebration to avoid the crowds.
