My grandmother, Gladys Sharp Ives, ran the Columns Hotel in New Orleans in the early 1950s. I remember taking the St. Chalres Ave, street car to visit her. She had a room on the top floor. There was a wide stair case with a stain glass window over it. The window and the stair case are pictured, as well as the St. Charles Ave. street car in front of the hotel. This hotel supplied the interior scences for the Louis Malle movie, Pretty Baby. It has a wonderful bar, live music and is a great place to stay.
