3937 Camp Street. The former home of the Boswell Sisters singing trio, Martha, Connie and Helvetia .
"A century ago, in 1914, Martha, Connie and Vet Boswell moved with their family from northern Alabama to Uptown New Orleans. The girls, all classically trained by New Orleans music professor Otto Finck, were singing sensations throughout the 1920s and ’30s, first locally via New Orleans radio, and later, throughout the entire nation.
Their close harmonies, tight vocals and cheerful subject matter could be heard on radios quite literally from coast to coast; at the height of their popularity, the Boswells of New Orleans were performing on NBC and CBS radio in New York City, and collaborating with the biggest names of radio’s Golden Age, including Bing Crosby, Cab Calloway, Duke Ellington and Tommy Dorsey."
