Vintage New Orleans

I was born & raised in New Orleans but currently reside in Texas. My blog is historical & vintage photos of my home town, New Orleans.

1984 Gondola ride over the mighty Mississippi. One of the World’s Fair rides in New Orleans. 2,200 foot cable trip across the Mississippi River. The trip lasted 4 minutes and cost $3.50. I personally was terrified of this but my parents took me on it anyway. Hey I was only 3!
