Picture 11.5-2.

Car 829 working the Gentilly line approaches Canal Street on Royal at Iberville.  Notice the multitude of large signs advertising the various businesses.  Notable among them are the Hotel Monteleone at the right, a four-star hotel still in business today, and Solari's, a well known restaurant that was in business from 1868 to 1965.  The more modest businesses seen here, such as the Kit Kat Restaurant at left and Leon's Art & Gift Shop at right, are typical of the kinds of stores that come and go in the Vieux Carré.  This photo probably dates from around 1946.
