Here we are traveling up to the top and the train is at our left.
These are called "Shotgun" homes. These are two family homes, note the two front doors. The home is narrow in design but very long. There were also single family Shotguns.
Found a place to park that didn't have any parking meters, seems that every meter we put money in, didn't work. We started our tour of the Garden District at the Elm Mansion
Joyce asking questions about the area.
Another shot of the mansion Some of the old Mansions along the walking tour.
All the homes are well maintained.
Every home was beautiful in it's own way.
We did see a lot of painting contractors working on various homes.
The Sign gives the history of the next two pictures. Although the home below is extremely beautiful, the unusual thing about it is the morning glory cornstalk cast iron fence as shown below.
Can you see the morning glory?
The corn stalks make up the fence.
More shotgun homes, these are double barrel design.
This single needs a little work!
The next part of our tour took us to the Lafayette Cemetery #1
