Historical Guidebooks

New Orleans is full of visitors right now thanks to the Super Bowl and Mardi Gras. For a glimpse of how tourists used to get around the city, check out some of Special Collections & Archive’s historic guidebooks and brochures for New Orleans. The following are from the Anthony J. Stanonis Pamphlet Collection, available in the Louisiana Digital Library.

Check out the Monroe Library’s catalog for more guidebooks and tourism related documents and archival collections in Special Collections & Archives, or come see us on the third floor to view any of these items in person.

Found in the Archives is a recurring series of crazy cool stuff found in the Monroe Library’s Special Collections & Archives.
