""Arnold Genthe's photography is world famous. In this volume he has caught forever the spirit of fast-vanishing old New Orleans in studies that are exquisite in their charm of light and shade, remarkable in their glimpses of character and place.
New Orleans is a city of romance and mystery, of dim, cool patios, of picturesque houses and queer, old-world streets. These aspects are vanishing, slowly but inexorably superseded by 'progress' and the rigorous requirements of modern life.
Arnold Genthe's work will be for all time a memorial to what has been."" -from the dust jacket.
