Picture 36.

An 1885 view looking toward the uptown side of Canal Street at St. Charles.  Orleans RR horsecar no. 17 is looping around the Henry Clay statue to begin its outbound trip.  A New Orleans City RR car is approaching the turntable on the lake side of the statue to complete its inbound run.  The second picture below shows a detail of ORR horsecar 17 in the foreground of the main picture.  The driver can be seen to be drinking from a bottle.  Notice the minuscule clerestory on the Bombay roof of the car; this was typical of New Orleans horsecars.
