Kodachrome Slides of New Orleans in the 1970s

New Orleans is a consolidated city-parish located along the Mississippi River in the southeastern region of the U.S. state of Louisiana. It is the most populous city in Louisiana. Serving as a major port, New Orleans is considered an economic and commercial hub for the broader Gulf Coast region of the United States.

New Orleans is world-renowned for its distinctive music, Creole cuisine, unique dialects, and its annual celebrations and festivals, most notably Mardi Gras. The historic heart of the city is the French Quarter, known for its French and Spanish Creole architecture and vibrant nightlife along Bourbon Street.

The city has been described as the “most unique” in the United States, owing in large part to its cross-cultural and multilingual heritage Additionally, New Orleans has increasingly been known as “Hollywood South” due to its prominent role in the film industry and in pop culture.

These Kodachrome slides from Rob Ketcherside were taken by his grandfather David C. Cook that show street scenes of New Orleans in 1976.
