Old Photos of LA State Bank

Check out the Palm tree in the 1st pic, and check it out in this pic.

The 2nd & 3rd pic are a view of the bank from the side street, Conti St.

I believe the last photo has the incorrect date as the bank was not built till 1920.  That pic was taken from Royal Street.

St. Louis Cemetery #1

Pics of the cemetery to give you an idea of what kind of B-Roll you can grab.

Latrobe's Monument

Latrobe was buried in the Protestant section of the cemetery. He, nor his son, have a tomb here and I do not know if this is where the "Lye pit" was... Will do further research about this. The other pics are just more of the cemetery.
