John Magill is Curator and Historian at The Historic New Orleans Collection. This podcast is the third in a six-part series about New Orleans in the 19th and early 20th centuries. In this interview, John describes the city's infrastructure in the 1800s and early 1900s, including electricity, streets, drainage, and sewage systems. Some of what John has to say will likely surprise many of us who are unaware of the early history of the facilities and services we use every day. John describes the early pump system and explains when the first real pumps were built. For those who have traveled Uptown and have wondered why St. Charles Avenue narrows to one lane at Louisiana Avenue, listen to John to find out!
