Upstairs Lounge Fire June 1973

There is a plaque embedded in the sidewalk remembering the victims of the fire at Iberville and Chartres. If memory serves me, it was Councilperson-at-large Oliver Thomas who made it happen. Unfortunately, he ended his political career serving time for kickbacks from Pampy Barre over French Quarter parking lot contracts.
He is again doing good deeds with different non-profits since his release.
