Royal Street Façades. "In 1825, unlike the rest of the French Quarter (the Vieux Carré, the "Old Quarter"), most of Royal Street was already paved with discarded ships' ballast -- everything outside the French Quarter was a quagmire green with weeds, rushes and palmetto. By the 1840s, Royal Street was confirmed as the main shopping and business locale, renowned for its banking institutions, hotels, cafes, shops and elegant residences, where many of the leading families lived. The street's architecture today is practically the same as it was then -- a synthesis of Spanish, French and American. The charming irregularity of the old buildings, the balconies hung with lacy iron, the stately doorways and archways barely hiding patios and courtyards festooned with camellias, magnolias, heliotrope and jasmine all confirm the city's historical continuum."

This beautiful circa 1890 bracketed frame shotgun was renovated in 2013. In the 1960s its owner waged, and thankfully lost, a prolonged legal battle to obtain a permit to demolish it. You can get a peek behind the facade of this building, which was made into a single-family home, at the leasing broker's website here: http://www.mmsre.com/listings/820-dumaine-street-new-orleans-louisiana-70116 | #neworleans #faubourg #frenchquarter #cottage #Victorian #shotgunhouse #preservation #historic #iheartnola #alwaysneworleans #architecture #nolaarchitecture #archdaily #followyournola #showmeyournola #nola #nolalove #thisisnola #oldhouse #oldhouselove #archi_ologie #itsyournola #casasecasarios #architektur #archilovers #igersneworleans #igerslouisiana

Italianate Victorian side-hall townhouse from about 1885. Swipe to see how it looked in the New Orleans Historic Collection's 1963 photo by Dan Leyrer. I'm old enough to remember the old-fashioned bus stop stanchion visible in the lower right of the monochrome photo. | #neworleans #faubourg #frenchquarter #townhouse #italianate #victorian #iheartnola #alwaysneworleans #architecture #nolaarchitecture #archdaily #followyournola #showmeyournola #nola #nolalove #thisisnola #oldhouse #oldhouselove #archi_ologie #itsyournola #casasecasarios #architektur #archilovers #igersneworleans #igerslouisiana

Circa 1900 cottage with attractive sunburst-patterned gable and Eastlake detailing on Robert Street in the Faubourg Avart section of Uptown New Orleans. The neighborhood (subdivided in 1841) and the street are named for the owner of the plantation just upriver of Bouligny: Francois Robert Avart. | #neworleans #faubourg #uptown #avart #bouligny #jeffersoncity #oldhousecharm #iheartnola #alwaysneworleans #architecture #nolaarchitecture #archdaily #followyournola #showmeyournola #nola #nolalove #thisisnola #oldhouse #oldhouselove #archi_ologie #itsyournola #casasecasarios #architektur #archilovers #igersneworleans #igerslouisiana

St. Charles Avenue mansion in the Hurstville section of Uptown New Orleans. "The house was built in 1889 by Louis Lambert, according to his own designs, for Thomas Underwood, for $9,000." It was purchased in 1899 by Edward Godchaux of the Canal Street clothing store Leon Godchaux Company. "Godchaux retained architects Favrot and Livaudais to make improvements including exterior changes, and sold it in 1935 to Paul Kling, Jr. Five years later, Kling sold the house to Edith Haspel who sold it in 1942 to Orazio DiCristina for $12,500." The original design included even more Eastlake detailing than presently exists, as the original porch was only covered above the front entrance and was supported by decorative turned columns. The home is currently assessed for tax purposes at $2,040,000. Sources: _New Orleans Architecture, Vol.VIII: The University Section_ by Friends of the Cabildo (1997) and public tax records.

From the Historic New Orleans Collection's Vieux Carre Digital Survey: "This small, stuccoed, brick building is of the Creole cottage-type; and it has plain banding which outlines the contours of the street façade on three sides and the unusual configuration (for a Creole cottage) of three bay openings on the front façade. Long the subject of demolition by neglect, this shell of a building, which has no rear wall, was probably constructed c. 1821 after a native of Bordeaux, France named Guillaume Marmiche bought this and several neighboring lots." | #neworleans #faubourg #frenchquarter #cottage #creole #iheartnola #alwaysneworleans #architecture #nolaarchitecture #archdaily #followyournola #showmeyournola #nola #nolalove #thisisnola #oldhouse #oldhouselove #archi_ologie #itsyournola #casasecasarios #architektur #archilovers #igersneworleans #igerslouisiana

According to the Historic New Orleans Collection's Diboll Vieux Carre Survey, this circa 1840 Creole cottage was originally brick-between-posts (briquette entre poteaux), but was modified greatly in the late 19th century by the addition of a late Victorian frame façade. | #neworleans #faubourg #frenchquarter #cottage #creole #iheartnola #alwaysneworleans #architecture #nolaarchitecture #archdaily #followyournola #showmeyournola #nola #nolalove #thisisnola #oldhouse #oldhouselove #archi_ologie #itsyournola #casasecasarios #architektur #archilovers #igersneworleans #igerslouisiana

Classic Queen Anne style home with Eastlake detailing in the Bayou St. John neighborhood. The paint scheme highlights the turned columns, decorative cornices, and multiple gables. | #neworleans #faubourg #stjohn #bayoustjohn #cottage #creole #iheartnola #alwaysneworleans #architecture #nolaarchitecture #archdaily #followyournola #showmeyournola #nola #nolalove #thisisnola #oldhouse #oldhouselove #archi_ologie #itsyournola #casasecasarios #architektur #archilovers #igersneworleans #igerslouisiana

View from my bedroom at my friend, Luke’s house, for the next eight days. Quite a difference for a New Orleanian. Alta, Utah. #alta #utah #mountainview
