eBay Perron16_126                 1892 Perron map ISTHMUS OF NEW ORLEANS, LOUSIANA (#126) Nice small map titled Isthme de la Nouvelle-Orleans, from  wood engraving with fine detail and clear impression, nice hand coloring.  Overall size approx. 19 x 16 cm, image size approx. 10 x 10 cm. From La Nouvelle Géographie universelle, la terre et les hommes, 19 vol. (1875-94), great work of Elisee Reclus. Cartographer is Charles Perron. New Orleans city, southeastern Louisiana, U.S. Unquestionably one of the most distinctive  cities of the New World, New Orleans was established at great cost in an  environment of conflict. Its strategic position, commanding the mouth of the  great Mississippi-Missouri river system, which drains the rich interior of North  America, made it a pawn in the struggles of Europeans for the control of North  America. As a result, the peoples of New Orleans evolved a unique culture and  society, while at the same time blending many heritages. Its citizens of African  descent provided a special contribution in making New Orleans the birthplace of  jazz. New Orleans is a city of paradox and contrast: while it shares the urban  problems afflicting other U.S. cities, it has nevertheless preserved an  exuberant and uninhibited spirit, perhaps best exemplified by its Carnival  season, which culminates in the famous annual Mardi Gras, when more than a  million people throng the streets. The city also has a solid economic base: it  is the largest city in Louisiana, one of the country's most important ports, a  major tourist resort, and a medical, industrial, and educational centre. It was  devastated by Hurricane Katrina in August 2005, when the levees protecting the  city were breached and nearly all of the city was flooded. The storm and its  aftermath killed hundreds, caused massive property damage, and forced a  full-scale evacuation of the city. Area city, 199 square miles (516 square km);  metropolitan area, 1,907 square miles (4,939 square km). Pop. (2000) 484,674;  New Orleans–Metairie–Kenner Metro Area, 1,316,510; (2010) 343,829; New  Orleans–Metairie–Kenner Metro Area, 1,167,764.
