NEW ORLEANS
Whenever I get the chance and I have the neccesary transport I always like to look at the city's and suburban local style of architecture.Visitors to New Orleans ,I would imagine ,(like I was ) would be struck by this unique and attractive style of old colonial buildings with their lovely big and "airey" external verandahs ,to cope with the local humidity These verandahs and external areas fitted out with intricately made wrought Iron "laceworked "balconiesand facias..
To me this was so much like early Australian Colonial houses with their iron lace facias and verandahs..a style that is followed today with many renovators following the old styles. I must say I thouroughly enjoyed New Orleans and look forward to a return visit..

Address: drive around the suburban areas close to the city.
