1849 Southern Yach Club is established
Founded in 1849, the Southern Yatch club, the second oldest in the United
States, prospered enough to building this attractive frame structure in 1879. Atop wood pilings in the waters of Lake Pontchartrain,
the club housed an office, clubrooms, dormitories and a cafe'; however, deterioration proved so severe by the end of World
War II, the building was demolished. The Southern Yacht Club, West End, New Orleans,La. This postcard is dated 1907, was made
in Germany and published by The New Orleans News Co.
