Found Postcard: Napoleon Bonaparte House, New Orleans, LA

The Napoleon Bonaparte House, situated in the heart of New Orleans’ famous Vieux Carre or French Quarter, is located at the corner of St. Louis and Chartres Streets. This building was erected with the idea of providing quarters of refuge for Napoleon Bonaparte after the bold plot in which the story says the noted Lafitte band of pirates were involved to kidnap him from exile in St. Helena and bring him to New Orleans. The plot failed because Napoleon died before it could be executed.
