NEW ORLEANS CITY HALLO - SELECT INVENTORY
This institution has research material which Louisbourg does not hold as a copied manuscript from any other institution as follows:
(1) The original "Plan Books" (150 volumes) from the New Orleans Notarial Archives can be consulted at the New Orleans City Hall. These are detailed elevations of any building that was to be sold at public auction by the City for the period 1802-1918. Examples of these the consultant has seen in several published works, and they have proven invaluable for interpreting New Orleans buildings of 18th century vintage that still existed in the 19th-20th centuries.
Unfortunately, these drawings are not available in microform or copied format and would need to be visited in person, a task not possible for the consultant during this trip owing to the extent of the collection in question. Their usefulness to the Fortress would also appear, at first blush, to be generally marginal, but their may be some particular exceptions.
