Bird’s-eye-view of New Orleans looking across the Mississippi River toward Lake Pontchartrain showing most of the urban area with much detail. It is fairly accurate, although there is some distortion of building heights. Steamboats Magnolia, Creole, Belle Key, Natchez and America are visible along with sailing ships at the port. The Vieux Carre and Central Business District are shown in great detail. In the foreground is the Marine Hospital at McDonoughville.
