|Title||Modernism on Canal: A Streetcar Tour of Endangered Buildings|
October 9, 2010
Canal Street is the primary mercantile artery through the city of New Orleans. In the 1920s it was touted as the Broadway of New Orleans, home to jazz venues and theatres. By the 1960s, its expanse was home to many of the city’s architectural offices. Julius Dreyfous, August Perez Jr., Sol Rosenthal, Solis Seiferth, and Curtis & Davis all maintained offices here. The street is now in flux. A number of important buildings have been razed, some are being reconditioned, and yet others are threatened with demolition.
