"Window Shopping On Royal" by Keith Oelschlager
Regular price $135.00
This charming scene takes place on Royal Street in the French Quarter of New Orleans. My research discovered that the Bevolo gas lamp manufacturer opened operations in 1945, so this image is likely right around that date. This is the corner of Royal and St. Ann by what is now the Pere Antoine restaurant. I fell in love with the mid-century cars and feel of the whole setting, not to mention the lovely mother and daughter out window shopping. I usually insist on only using my own photos as reference material, but I made an exception in this case because I felt this is a picture too perfect to be ignored.
