The online historical archive British Pathé has released 85,000 archival newsreels to YouTube and among the treasure trove of archival footage is a slew of films about New Orleans from the early 20th century. Of course, many of the films, like the one above, are about Mardi Gras but there are also a few interesting clips of Hurricane Katrina, General Charles DeGaulle's visit to the Big Easy in 1960 and footage of the Catholic Congress in 1938.
