Historic New Orleans Collection uncovers FQ well

The Historic New Orleans Collection is working on the Brulatour House on Royal Street, which has a long and storied history, including operating as the Arts and Crafts Club for a number of years in the early part of the 20th century. Many of its artists used its facade and courtyard for inspiration for many art works, which is why the courtyard will look so familiar to so many people when it is finally opened to the public.
The HNOC uploaded some pictures of the work of the discovery of a well in the courtyard. The previous paving that can be seen near the top is fascinating.
