906 Esplanade Connection to JFK Assassination
On March 1, 1967, New Orleans District Attorney Jim Garrison arrested businessman Clay Lavergne Shaw on the charge of conspiracy to assassinate President John F. Kennedy. Precisely two years later, Shaw was acquitted. Clay Shaw is the only individual ever prosecuted for conspiracy to assassinate JFK. This link provides the information from James Kirkwood's, American Grotesque, 1992 ed., pp. 231-45, which discusses our building and the alleged conspiracy to assassinate President John Kennedy.

This is a work in progress! I have so much more to share. Please visit again and see what other topics, places, stories and photos I've added.
I already had a collection of vintage New Orleans postcards and photos online, but, after Katrina, I felt a need to create a series of pages that would enable me to devote more attention to specific places, customs and groups of people, with the emphasis still on old photographs and illustrations, but with some history and story-telling added. In this way, I can provide a more complete picture of each...and, ultimately, a more complete picture of my historic, unique and wonderful hometown, the grand old lady by the river...New Orleans.
She has given me so much. This is my gift to her.
