1907 Rex Parade

While digging around in the city directories for New Orleans I've stumbled across some exciting and surprising finds. I am currently waiting on some records from the Louisiana State Archives and Orleans Parish Court, so the rest of the story will have to wait a bit. For now, I am posting some photos from the 1907 Rex Parade in New Orleans (via the New Orleans Public Library Digital Collection). It is quite likely that a certain family member would have seen this parade and participated in the festivities around New Orleans. The photos in this set are from the George Francois Mugnier Collection.
