After our little breakfast we had another hour before our tour. So we browsed the area a little. Went into an antique shop that had some amazing things that were way out of my price range.
After the little window shopping we headed over to meet our group for a "Free Tours by Foot" tour of the French Quarter. Our guide was Joanne. She was originally from Australia but has lived in New Orleans for several years now.
It was very cold and windy. Poor thing was chattering as she talked. But she was a trooper. She new her history of New Orleans and the Louisiana purchase and more. The tour included a good variety from history to architecture and recommendations.
I would recommend Free Tours by Foot for sure. There was no pressure with regard to tipping or an amount. She was very discreet about taking money at the end and not paying attention to the amount.
Let see what I can remember about some of these photos.
There was a long story about the lady that had this building and the one similar on the other side of Jackson Square. She inherited money from her father who was Spanish. She married a French guy. Something something something anyway. The scroll work on the wrought iron was really cool and included her maiden and married name initials.
I think the is the Napoleon House. Napoleon never lived here.
Pat O'Briens on Burboun St.
That about covers the pics I took during the tour.
