Natchez Cemetery, Turning Angel




This is the Natchez Cemetery that sits across from the Dick Tracy house. In the story, this is where they hide the bikes. You can see the statue of the Turning Angel. You would also pass the cemetery on the way to the Devil's Punchbowl.

Inspiration for Black Box



This place is down near the levee in Baton Rouge. It is surrounded by an old cyclone fence and is overgrown and nearly hidden. This place helped inspire where Devereaux finds the black box.

Some places that inspired Lafitte's Black Box




The first house is an example of a Victorian house in Natchez and would have been along the road that Devereaux and Taylor road their bikes to the cemetery.

The large white house is Weymouth Hall and sits across from Natchez Cemetery. It was not restored when I was younger. It was called the Dick Tracy house.
