This stereograph features hundreds of barrels of sugar on the ground with men standing or working among them. Smoke from freight-boats can be seen in the distance. The title along the bottom right edge proclaims the scene as "The sweetest spot on earth--sugar levee beside the Mississippi River, New Orleans, La." The publisher's name is printed on either end of the images. The back of the stereograph provides a brief history of the sugar industry in the United States.
