PRESERVE LOUISIANA’S IMAGES ORGANIZATION
Preserve Louisiana's Images
The collection is the work of the “Preserve Louisiana’s Images” (PLI) organization, a consortium of these organizations: the City of Louisiana’s Historic Preservation Commission, the Louisiana Area Historical Museum, the Louisiana Public Library, and the Louisiana Historic Preservation Association. The collection focuses on Downtown Buildings, Street Scenes and Businesses, Local Businesses outside the Downtown Business District, Historic Homes, River Scenes, and Key Citizens. Start up funding for the project provided by Louisiana Rotary Club.
Some of the intended uses of these images are: documenting the past appearance of historic properties, providing an education tool for local schools, providing a back-up for original photos and images many of which are in the hands of private individuals, promoting historic tourism, and recording historical information for future generations while first or second hand information is still available. Contact PLI if you would like to propose additional or enhanced information about images in this collection.
