Picture 2.

This is an 1857 view of Canal Street, looking almost due north from about Carondelet and Bourbon Streets.  We see the wide neutral ground as it existed before street railroads were built.  There are numerous omnibuses, giving such public transportation as they could. Ballou's Pictorial, Vol. 13, No. 5, August 1, 1857, pencil drawing by Mr. Kilburn, from a photo by James Andrews
