The companies that participated in the Canal Street rebuilding were justifiably proud of the accomplishment, and used it in their advertising.  Here is an ad from the Union Metal Manufacturing Co., featuring the ornamental light standards they supplied to the project.  These poles remain on Canal Street to the present day.  The company is also still in the business of providing street lighting standards.  That's car 817 passing the Saenger Theater at the lower right.
