this 1941 view of West End (looking toward the city) we see the U.S. Army base hospital and LaGarde General Hospital in the
left background. Note the New Basin canal on the right. The building in the foreground would later become "Bart's"
owned by Sherwood "Big Wheel" Bart. Note the Jax, and 4X beer signs. (Courtesy Henry Harmison and the
