(English Edition) ☪ By Doug Gelbert ♏ There is no better way to see America than on foot And there is no better way to appreciate what you are looking at than with a walking tour Each walking tour describes historical and architectural landmarks and provides pictures to help out when those pesky street addresses are missing Every tour also includes a quick primer on identifying architectural styles seen on American streets.The French Quarter spreads up from the Mississippi River across some 70 blocks This is where the original French Colonial settlement of Nouvelle Orleans was laid out in simple squares in1718 by French Canadian naval officer Jean Baptiste Bienville Bienville served as governor for financier John Laws Company of the Indies, which in naming the city for the Regent Duc dOrleans sought to curry Court favor before failing spectacularly in the Great Mississippi Bubble The French Period legacy endures in the town plan and central square, church of St Louis, Ursuline Convent and womens education, ancien regime street names such as Bourbon and Royal, the charity hospital, and a mixed legacy of Creole culture, Mardi Gras, and the important effects of African enslavement combined with a tolerant approach to free persons of color.In 1762 the indifferent Louis XV transferred Louisiana to his Bourbon cousin Charles III of Spain Emboldened by a period of Spanish vacillation in taking power, Francophile colonists staged a revolution in 1768, summarily squelched by Alejandro OReilly with a firing squad at the Esplanade fort Spanish rule lasted for four decades, imparting a legacy of semi fortified streetscapes, commonwall plastered brick houses, and walled courtyards used as gardens and utility spaces with separate servants quarters and kitchens Olive oil cooking and graceful wrought iron balconies, hinges and locks in curvilinear shapes, and strong vestiges of civil law remain from the Spanish presence.Typical of the eccentricities of the Vieux Carre or old square is the fact that its much admired iron embroidered architecture is not French, but Spanish Disastrous fires one after another in 1788 and 1794 destroyed all but a handful of the original French buildings.Street names have floated back and forth between French and Spanish and the gold and blue signs on the corner buildigns indicate the street names that were recognized under earlier regimes Sited on the highest ground in the area, the French Quarter sustained little damage from the flooding of New Orleans in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.Our walking tour will
