A French Quarter Icon
One thing in the French Quarter of New Orleans that won’t miss the attention of any first-time visitor is the horse head hitching posts along the streets. They are everywhere. They look timeworn. They are not all the same. Some have been painted over and over. Some are rusted and cracked. But they are still solid and firm, apparently capable of witnessing what’s going on in the French Quarter for a long long time to come.
