1000 block of Royal Street, September 1, just two days after Ida roared through. A few people on the street - mostly residents, business owners and workman – starting cleanup. Lots of garbage bags on the street from emptied refrigerators, but thankfully not a lot of major damage apparent! Parts of the French Quarter had electricity restored later that night. photo by Ellis Anderson
