Product description

From the Back Cover

"New Orleans is one of America's richest architectural possessions. . . . These architecture books lay a solid foundation in the field, are a great gift to general historians, and, as the authors hoped, have contributed immeasurably to the maintenance of extant architectural treasures."
-New Republic

This award-winning volume compiled by the Friends of the Cabildo focuses on the architecture along the length of majestic Esplanade Avenue from the Mississippi River to Bayou St. John.
The Esplanade Ridge represents a treasure-trove of nineteenth-century architecture. Included are French-Colonial and Creole homes, American-style frame and brick townhouses, Louisiana plantation buildings, as well as Italianate Victorian, Second Empire, Edwardian, Mission, and City Beautiful styles. More than 350 modern and archival photographs, paintings, and sketches are reproduced along with a large map of Esplanade Avenue.
