All photos are from The Charles L. Franck Studio Collection at The Historic New Orleans Collection.
Charles L. Franck (1877–1965) was a commercial photographer in New Orleans; his studio was purchased in 1955 by Albert Bertacci (1935–2005). Tens of thousands of photographs and negatives from the Franck and Franck-Bertacci studios, held at The Historic New Orleans Collection, chronicle the face and growth of Louisiana, and New Orleans in particular, during the 20th century.

Looked good but crashes on ios8
Really good idea and I was able to see a couple of photos but the app crashes and exits when using the arrow buttons.
This is little more than 50 photos pinned to a map.
The app looks impressive, but it quits before running anything. This was on my iPhone 5s running iOS8
