Cornstalk Fence

In keeping with my New Orleans theme, I'm showing this cornstalk fence and gate for Show and Tell. We saw this on our self-guided walking tour. The unique cast iron fence featuring cornstalks entwined with morning glories was shipped from Philadelphia in 1850. It surrounds the beautiful house with a turret, which is now a hotel. This is on Royal Street in the French Quarter.

To tell the truth, I had planned to take photos of something else for Show and Tell, but since I'm late with it I decided to show something I already had pictures of! I'm almost finished with the N.O. pictures!

Go to to see Kelli's and about 50 other great Show and Tell subjects! Thanks, Kelli for sponsoring this weekly!
