Here’s a link to a .pdf of a 16 page booklet promoting tourism in New Orleans from 1948: This Week in New Orleans (Dec 4 1948).

A friend of mine who works at a historical museum in downstate Illinois sent this along.  There are some  hand written notations from the original owner of the document from her long ago visit to Nola.

Derek Bridges lives in New Orleans, trading in words and pictures. A carpetbagger of long standing, he grew up in the top right corner of IL and later went to college in the middle cornfield part. He has also lived in MS and FL, for educational purposes only, and was diasporized for a time in TX.
