Here is a link to an article about these beautiful courtyards.
And here is an excerpt from an article at GoNola.com:
“. . . while courtyards have long been rightly associated with New Orleans architecture, these interior spaces rarely fully present themselves from the street. As a result we can never know what jewel may be cached behind the sober walls of a townhouse, and it is this half-hidden quality that adds to the allure of courtyards. A quick flash of green glimpsed through a narrow iron gate or the brief sound of a trickling fountain, courtyards are the architectural equivalent of whispers, or even lingerie.”
