As a child, I spent numerous summers in NO. My aunt and uncle lived on Magazine Street. I can still recall the Mardi Gras and us on the balcony fighting to catch the beads, and back then, they were beautiful beads. You see, that has been over 50 years or more! I have been searching the web to obtain photos of Magazine Street BEFORE the hurricane and flood. I wanted to try to identify their home, as I really feel it is still standing since Magazine St. has obviously become an eclectic place. Then perhaps time has robbed me of the chance to see the area again as I once knew it. I had wanted so deperately to visit NO once more to reminesce and visit old haunts...that is not to be now. I waited too late and I fear NO will never be the same. I am not saying that it can't be wonderful again, I am saying it can't ever be the same. If anyone out there has images of Magazine St. at any time of any year of any content, please forward them to the site. I will always be checking to see if they appear and provide me with one last glimpse of the NO I once knew and loved. NO almost became my home...that brings on another emotional issue...
