One day I was doing an image search for "old french market" and found this black-n-white photo (see below).

When I saw it, I thought to myself, "Wait, I've seen this before!"

I pulled up Red Dead Redemption 2, which is one of my favorite games, and took a screenshot.

I understood that Saint Denis was loosely based on New Orleans, but I've never been to New Orleans myself and so when I was doing the search I had no idea that New Orleans has a French Market.

In comparing the two images, I see some similarity in a building in the background with a triangular roof and short chimneys.

Anyway, the point is that I just found it cool to come across a photo which an environment artist may have used as a reference photo when modeling the city.
