vintagenola: “ 800 Block of Orleans Street - 1941 Via the Franck - Bertacci Photographers Collection ”

D. H. Holmes first opened the doors to its Canal Street store in 1842.  It became a favorite place to shop; its restaurant, a favorite place to have lunch; its Christmas display a must-see during the holidays...and the clock which hung over its entrance, a favorite place for friends to arrange a meeting.  All you had to say was"I'll meet you under the clock" and everyone knew what you meant.  The store closed in 1989. (Sketch done in 1873)
