Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description:

Though thirty years in the making, Phillip Collier's Missing New Orleans was almost another treasure lost to Hurricane Katrina. Final proof was due at the New Orleans printer August 31, 2005, just days after floodwaters breached the levees. To the principals of the book, "missing New Orleans" took on personal, devastating meanings.

This pictorial history of New Orleans from the early 1700s to the present offers over 250 images as well as stories of places, entities, and events that were at one time a vital part of the city. Each lost gem tells a unique narrative: the Claiborne Avenue Oaks, the French Opera House, Pontchartrain and Lincoln Beaches, the Gypsy Tea Room, Tulane and Pelican Stadiums, Mr. Bingle, and D. H. Holmes. Images celebrate grand historic structures that once stood along New Orleans thoroughfares, including the St. Louis and St. Charles Hotels from the mid-nineteenth century and the five downtown railroad stations and the Rivergate from the twentieth century.

Through the photographs, postcards, posters, maps, and line drawings gathered by New Orleans graphic designer Phillip Collier, those enamored of the Crescent City can explore a time when West End Park and Spanish Fort were lakefront resort destinations, when boxing and horse racing ruled the city's sporting world, when street vendors plied their wares, and steamboats packed the wharves.
