The laundry still needs to be done


Remember the other day, when I said that the behind-the-scenes things fascinated me?

Bourbon Street, in New Orleans’s French Quarter, is known for many things – bars, strip clubs, Mardi Gras shenanigans, and so on. But there’s never been a mention of Bourbon Street laundromats, as far as I know.*

So you can just imagine how happy I was when I saw this place, right there on Bourbon Street.

* I went to grad school in New Orleans; my degree was in urban planning with a concentration in historic preservation planning.** We did a lot of projects in the Quarter. I’d led a pretty sheltered life until then…

** No, I really don’t use that degree. Ever. But thanks for asking.

  1. Wonderful atmosphere. The charm and ‘timelessness’ of ordinary things come thru in this beautiful image.


  2. LAUN DRY TERIA. Love the emphasis on DRY. I suppose in the old days it might have been a place to process ill gotten cash?
