Another N. C. Folger Discovery

On Monday, Gossips shared this description of the newly erected home of "that prince of clothing merchants, N. C. Folger," which appeared in the New Orleans Delta on October 30, 1854.  


Last night, I discovered a picture of the the residence of N. C. Folger, from the Williams Research Center of the Historic New Orleans Collection, which had been shared on

The article from the Delta indicates hat the house was on Apollo Street, between Triton Walk and Calliope. The address written on this historic photograph of the house, however, is 1019 Carondelet. A Google map search for 1019 Carondelet locates it close to Calliope, but there is no trace today of Triton Walk or of the "splendid edifice" that was N. C. Folger's home.
