The WDSU AM transmitter building in Algiers

The WDSU AM transmitter building housed a 5000 watt RCA transmitter. the building no longer exists. The transmitter site became the site of the Oakwood Shopping Center, a developement of Edgar Stern's Royal Street Corporation. A swimming pool was constucted adjacent to the transmitter building by a construction company that traded construction of the pool for the mud excavated to form the pool. The pool never had a drop of water in it as its location was sold to the state and federal governments to allow building of the Westbank Expressway directly over the pool site.
