Picture 34.

Here is a view just a little further out from the river than Pictures 20 through 24.  We are looking almost due north, toward the lake.  Only one, blurred horsecar is in view, but we can see clearly that there are 4 tracks at this point: the inner New Orleans City RR pair of tracks, and the outer Canal and Claiborne Streets RR pair.  The type of horse drawn cab in the foreground is still available for hire today on New Orleans streets, but the old Christ Church (1873-1883) is long gone from Canal Street; its site is occupied by the Maison Blanche department store.
