New Orleans 1934

Burial customs in New Orleans, Louisiana differ from those elsewhere in the United States. The city is below the level of the Mississippi River, and the ground is too damp. Thus, vaults, such as these shown Nov. 4, 1934, provide a burial place. The flowers were placed there on All Saints Day, November 1, 1934. (AP Photo)
