Established in 1837 as the Picayune (a Spanish coin), this New Orleans Newspaper became the Times-Picayune in 1914 (after merging with its rival paper). It has hosted writers such as William Faulkner, O. Henry and Sue Eakin, as well as has been awarded the 1997 Pulitzer Prize for articles and cartooning, among other accolades.
Loved by all New Orleanian, this newspaper's last daily distribution was the month of September 2012, afterward printing only 3 times a week. Here is my tribute to the 200 people who dedicated decades of their life to this wonderful part of New Orleans history and culture. "A Grand Tradition" du cafe, des amis et le journal (coffee, friends and the paper).
