Click on the above link for a good photo of 509 Wagner Street in Algiers, Louisiana. Home of William Burroughs in 1948 and 1949.  I have always wanted to know what this place looked like.
For a really good 360 degree look go to google maps and type in 509 Wagner Street Algiers, Louisiana.

Link below to page about William Burroughs home in Algiers, La. Contains interview with Burroughs about his home at 509 Wagner St. in Algiers, La across from New Orleans. Contains a picture of the house also. And of the historical marker that was placed by the house in 2007.

Good link to best article I have ever read on the death of Joan Vollmer Burroughs.
