Cafe - Sun Coffee Shop - Canal St. - 1935.
"New Orleans downtown street, Louisiana" c. December 1935.
View shows Canal Street from near the foot, at Front Street on the lower side of Canal, looking away from the River. Abundant business signs are on the block, with that for Sun Coffee Shop closest, the business being on the corner at the right. The pole marking a barber shop is just beyond. Other signs seen include “Oriental Laundry — Not in the Trust” and restaurants with ads for Regal Beer and Luzianne Coffee.
