Orleans Syrup Factory

As a follow-up from my post this morning, below is an advertisement for Raphael Tudury's Orleans Syrup and Cordial Manufactory located at 147-149 Elysian Fields Street. This is where Joseph Halter worked during the 1860s and 1870s in New Orleans.

This puts a different view on the movement of Joseph Halter between New Orleans and Evansville after the Civil War. Perhaps he was accompanying shipments of syrup and cordials from New Orleans to Evansville. I'll have to look for this in the Evansville newspapers.

In any case it is a cool find - another member of the family involved in the liquor business.

  1. What is there now? And do you have any info on any other syrup factories in the early 1900s in NOLA? I'm at a brick wall with some of my ancestry...

    1. Hey sorry for the delay in responding. I'm not sure what is there now, the street addresses were changed in New Orleans. I found this by looking at the city directories on Ancestry. If you had family working in the syrup factories in NOLA at the time, it might help to look at city directories and map out a timeline they were in town. Tulane University has a good archive as well for information.
