I was there years ago and wanted to take images. I had on shorts and they won't let you in with shorts. My friend went in and got pictures and they didn't turn out. But the young lady Maitre 'd told me that a few years ago, they remodeled, and gutted the old motors out of the fans.

I'm not at home right now, but I'm pretty confident those were offered in my 05 Mesco? :wondering:

Nice Steve.  I figured they were much older than 1915 which is when Galatoire's took over the building.  I'll see if I can't get my friend who works for a historical society to see what was there c1900.

Too bad about the motor swap.

My historian friend says:

3 ½ story house with attached two-story service building constructed in 1831 for P.A. Hebrard.  This Creole style has a side carriageway entrance, lyre design balconies on the upper floors, and its ground floor and courtyard area have undergone alterations over the years.  It has housed Galatoire’s Restaurant since 1905 and Victor’s Restaurant before that. [Looking at the chain of title, I’d guess this entry’s date of 1905 is a typo, and yours of 1915 is likely more accurate]

So, Victor probably put them in.
