Where in New Orleans?

The Royal Enfield dealer in New Orleans was Bob's Cycle. The ad shown is from the Times Picayune 4th of May 1947. The address listed is 1108 Baronne. That portion of the street was razed to construct the 6 lane elevated Pontchartrain Expressway in the mid 1950's, and apparently Bob closed shop on that occasion. We can see his shop listed in an environmental study that looked for historic gas stations and garages and how they could contribute to pollution.
