Estate Sale Treasure

I recently went to an estate sale where I came upon this picture and immediately loved it. Of course, the Praline Lady with her basket on top of her head had everything to do with me buying it. I plan to get it framed as soon as possible.

I can’t find out anything about this photo except the location is Pirates Alley. If anyone has any information please share.

“Pralines, Pistache! Pralines, Pacanes;” the family marchande, coming into the courtyard swaying her body on her hips to balance the basket on her head…” King, G.E. (1896). New Orleans; the place and the people,. London: Macmillan and Company.
