Picture 190.

The caption to this postcard called Canal Street “the shopper's paradise.”  In addition to the many stores, we can see signs for a theater (on the left, beyond the turreted building at Carondelet street), and on the right between Maison Blanche and D. H. Holmes, a sign advertising “French opera.”  But the hordes of automobiles have yet to arrive. — C. T. American Art
