This circa 1930s photo of Tregle’s Restaurant & Bar (6113 -- across from Zephyr Field) illustrates the rural
and undeveloped nature of the surroundings at that time. At 6115, Lou-Mar Restaurant & Bar served guests during the 1960s
as did the Dixie Bell Motel (6137); it later became Passman’s Restaurant specializing in chicken, steak, and seafood
“one block from Airline Shopping Center” (an animal clinic is there now). At 6201 was the Good Luck Tourist Courts
(now a daiquiri bar). Barnett’s Furniture Store opened at 6303 in 1961. Like many other New Orleans businesses it added
a new location in Metairie.
