Brunswig Pyramid Tomb just seems like there is another story behind it…

Lucien Brunswig came  to New Orleans via marriage as so many people do. He is the founder of one of the largest drug distribution companies in the United States.

Pyramid Tomb at Lake Lawn in New Orleans

” 1854-1943. Born in Montmedy, France, in the Meuse district. Brunswig emigrated to the United States, where he worked as a druggist in Fort Worth, Texas, in the late 1870s. He moved to New Orleans, where he married Annie Mercer (1857-1892). They had a son, Lucien Mercer Brunswig, and a daughter Annie, after her mother. In 1887 Brunswig founded a pharmaceutical distributing company. Their son died just before his 10th birthday, in April 1892, and Lucien Brunswig’s wife Annie died a month later.”

“Lucien Brunswig came to Los Angeles in 1903 and became a partner in a local drug company. At some point he remarried to Marguerite Wogan (1862-1946), a widow from New Orleans, though we have not been able to locate the date of that marriage or where it took place. One source says that Marguerite arrived in Los Angeles in 1908.”

Mid City Home, Flowers 2014

 

Desoto Street and Moss Street in Mid City

Mid City Home on Desoto 2      From Mid City to Uptown, New Orleans Homes do put on quite a show this time of year.  The weather is cool, the rain plentiful, and the sun shines most days.  Add in the historic homes and you get the beginning of Spring.  The pictures above are from Mid City where you get a variety of plants and all kinds of color.  These tow homes are on Desoto Street which is one of my favorite streets to walk. Such a variety within 6-7 blocks from Bayou St. John.

      The Uptown homes tend to have more organized gardens but no less colorful. Great time to enjoy the outdoors…. These are from the Garden District.  The homes in the Garden District will generally be larger and much older that the Mid City cottages.  But then you will find some large home nestled in the neighborhood.

City Park Ducks 2014

City Park Swans and Ripples     Calling all Pelicans, Ducks, Swans and  Geese that make the lagoons at City Park come alive in the Spring.  These are just a few of our winged friends that make City Park home.  Plenty to eat and it’s a safe place to raise a family.  They are friendly beggars and love all the human attention that they can get. So Lucky to have nature so close to the city.  Some nice real estate for all to enjoy…I joined Friends of the Park and now I go more…..
