New Orleans City Park (Images of America)

Mr. and Mrs. John F. Popp


The Popp name is memorialized twice in the park – on the bandstand (page 59) and on the fountain (page 70) which would not exist if not for the generosity of Mr. and Mrs.John F. Popp who were present at the dedication of bandstand (he died shortly afterward). Pictured is the John F. Popp & Co. lumber dealership and manufacturers depot on the New Basin Canal in an 1888 engraving. (LDL)
