NEW! Hertzberg Finding Aid/UPhO #8

The Southeastern Architectural Archive (SEAA) recently finalized the processing of the Rudolf Hertzberg Louisiana Architecture Photographs. Levee engineer Rudolf Hertzberg (1906-1982) donated the prints and corresponding negatives to the Tulane School of Architecture during the Second World War. These were part of an open collection that served faculty and students. During the 1970s, those contact prints and negatives still extant were transferred to Tulane University Libraries. Hertzberg donated an additional set of prints and negatives in 1972 and Library staff unified the two donations to form a single collection that entered the SEAA when it was founded in 1980.

Anyone know the location?  Van Geffen's Bakery was located at 1325 St. Bernard Avenue, but we have been unable to locate the Susie-Q-Inn. This is one of many Unidentified Photographic Objects [UPhOs] in the SEAA.

UPDATE:  KUDOS to the SEAA's Kevin Williams for locating the structures, 1201-1203 St. Philip Street/1005-1007 Henriette Delille Street (formerly St. Claude).
