It fared very, very badly indeed. Sonny's old apartment building was right
next to the canal, on Orleans street, and it didn't get too much water. But
Harrison Avenue was under about 8 feet of water, and my church near the
corner of Robert E. Lee and Canal Blvd got about 12-15 feet. Unlike the
lower 9th ward, the water levels rose very slowly, so the damage was all
just flood damage. No breakaway barges in Lakeview.

I like the look you're getting with these, Jeffery.  A couple look really
old.  Particularly liked #7.  The shots of City Park (19, 21) reminded me of
when I used to skinny-dip there as a teenager, in the lagoon toward the
north end of the park.  Fifty years ago!  I lived in Lake Terrace then,
about 3-4 blocks south of the lake.  Any idea how that area fared in
