We had a nice Christmas party combined with an opening of C. Bennett Moore antique photographs at Joe Bergeron's studio and gallery last Saturday night.

One of the most interesting Moore photo originals was of two black chimney sweeps in traditional sweep garb standing on the street in the FQ, taken in 1910.

If you are interested in old New Orleans and wonderful photogrpahy, visit the studio in the 500 block of Natchez, off Magazine and Poydras.

Check out Joe Bergeron's studio website. He's got some great old shots of New Orleans in the 'Gallery' section. Absolutely beautiful.

Here's the chimney sweeps Greg told us about:

I encourage all local history buffs to visit the Bergeron Gallery website at
