postcard, "Financial District, The Carondelet Canyon". View of Carondelet Street up from Canal Street, with high-rises including the Hibernia Bank building and 1920s automobiles visible. Text on back of card: "More money is involved in the gigantic transactions which take place in the buildings shown in this picture, the Carondelet Canyon of New Orleans, than in any other center of the South. The buildings on the right are (reading from the foreground backward) -- Federal Reserve Branch, Canal-Commercial Bank (New Orlean's [sic] biggest), Marine Bank, Cotton Exchange and Hibernia Bank."
