New Orleans City Park (Images of America)

1913 - The Casino


The Casino, opened on July 11, 1913, is now one of the park's few surviving Spanish Mission-style era structures. Renovated in 1999, and re-named the Timken Center, its second floor is used for meetings and parties. This photo was taken in 1939 after WPA renovations – a boarding dock for the Swan boat is at the far right. (NOPL)
