The relationship between New Orleans and Havana is historically strong - a connection reflected by shared architectural elements prevalent in both cities. Photographs, historical maps, and academic texts in The Pearl and the Crescent consider the cities' architectural ancestry, encouraging greater awareness of the connectivity between these sister cities.
J. Marshall Brown is a Candidate for the Master of Preservation Studies degree at Tulane University. After a trip to study historic preservation in Havana, he developed a keen interest in the island nation's innovative approach to historic preservation as well as the common history between Havana and the city he now calls home - New Orleans.
