It is Lafayette Cemetery. I found an article in the Louisiana genweb archives project Below is a PORTION of the article regarding that cemetery. Picayune November 2, 1885 - Page 2 GRAVES. or Washington Street Cemetery had been put into the most beautiful order for the day of All Saints. Its wide walks of white shells glisten snow white in the sun, its marble tombs are as white and pure as when fresh quarried, and the long double rows of trees cast shadows on a sward like velvet, and the air is faint with the odor of the sweet olive blossoms.
