New Orleans Nostalgia - Ponchartrain Beach

Rated 5.00/5 based on 2 reviews
In 1928, when Harry Batt, Sr. opened Ponchartrain Beach, a New Orleans dynasty was born. Until it was shuttered for good in 1983, “The Beach” captured the imagination of generations. But now, in the mid-1950’s, while Walt Disney was just embarking on his vision of family entertainment, Harry had it all down pat at a long time ago. . .
Enjoy a stroll down memory lane to a simpler time. . .

About Stephen Austen

Stephen W. Austen was born in Lafayette, Louisiana. "I was born in Lafayette and raised in New Orleans. But I truly grew-up as I travelled or lived in some thirty-four states." A Human Resources Manager, he now resides with his family in Monroe, North Carolina.

My writings and interests are eclectic. My latest series, "The Paladin Papers" are fast-paced, fact-based military/techno thrillers. Based on today's events and often set in the near future, they offer thought-provoking entertainment. They will keep you thinking long after you put them down.

"I am certain you will enjoy reading these stories as much as I did writing them. . ."

Fun stuff with an hoest personal touch. Could've been a page from someone's childhood from almost anywhere. Kinda like the breezy, yet descriptive style...
