cgranger A postcard signed by playwright Tennessee Williams. While I was shooting a restaurant review of Marti's restaurant in the French Quarter, the owner brought to the bar where we were sitting a packet of memorabilia on the place. Out poured this jewel. Williams once lived across the street from the restaurant at Dumaine and Rampart streets and was a regular at the bar. #tennesseewilliams #bar #foodporn #writer #theater #neworleans #igersneworleans #louisiana #martisrestaurant 3w

cgranger What's left of a complex where some of the nearly 9,000 Higgins vessels were built in New Orleans to help U. S. troops during World War II. Ninety-two percent of the entire Navy fleet, such as the famous landing craft on the beaches of Normandy, were designed by Higgins Industries. #military #ww2 #dday #neworleans #landscape #boat 1mon

cgranger Talk about power hitting. How about this 4-year-old's swing at a St. Bernard Parish T-ball game on Thursday, June 5? Hopefully we'll see him hitting a home run out of Alex Box Stadium in say....15 years? #baseball #cute #summer #sports #life #nola #igersneworleans #children 1mon

cgranger Just when you think you've had some challenges in life, read today's NOLA.com story about Leonard Galmon. His mother had him when she was 13 years old, his father is a murdered drug dealer. Now, a graduate of one of the worst performing schools in New Orleans, Cohen High School, Galmon will be attending Yale University this fall where he hopes to study art. #nocca #yale #life #adversity #inspiration #art #portrait #bw #neworleans #igersneworleans #nola 2mon
