Welcome to Street Scene Gallery! A few street scenes of New Orleans include the all night parties, year round, even when there is no Mardi Gras celebration, the line of palm readers that can be found along Jackson Square and the street entertainers such as the young man dressed as a cowboy, spray-painted from hat to boots in solid gold. These scenes and many more can be found captured in the hand-painted prints called Woodgraphs. They say a picture paints a thousand words, and these depictions of life on New Orleans streets are surely worth even more.
