The forty-one prints document a wide range of ornamental railings, as well as architectural capitals, pilasters, and mantels. The New Orleans Daily Creole (October 11 1856) includes a wood engraving of Homes's iron works, and various issues of The Daily Picayune and The Daily True Delta contain the company's paid advertisements.
Mr. Homes later became an active member of the Louisiana Jockey Club (secretary in 1868) and the Mechanics and Agricultural Fair Association (treasurer and secretary in 1877).
