"The Petit Salon"
This stately building, with its winding iron staircase, and grilled balconies, known
as "The House of Emblems". is owned and occupied by "La Petit Salon", a club of ladies
formed to keep alive interest in the Vieux Carre and to preserve the traditions of the
Parisian "salons made famous by Mme. de Slael, Mme. Recamier, and others."
On the left is seen the side view of the residence of General Andrew Jackson, which now
houses the club room of "the Daughters of 1812".
Postcard size, but without the usual postal markings (see image).
