Girod Street - Part 2

 Girod Street in Mandeville is home to a variety of interesting buildings, both homes and offices. Recently I took a number of pictures of those buildings and businesses between Tammany Trace and the lakefront. This is the second batch of photographs. The first batch may be viewed by CLICKING HERE.

   According to an article in the Times Picayune, Girod Street in Mandeville was named in honor of Nicholas Girod, the fifth mayor of New Orleans (and wealthy merchant), who once hatched a scheme to rescue deposed French emperor Napoleon Bonaparte from exile and bring him to the area.

Here is the second batch of pictures recently taken along Girod Street:

According to the City of Mandeville website:  The building at the corner of Girod Street and Lakeshore Drive (1951 Lakeshore Drive) was built circa 1850. "In the 1860’s, it was part of a large complex of buildings known as the Soldier’s Home. Honore Dousan, émigré from France and a physician in Napoleon’s army, cared for Confederate soldiers there.
