Picture 90.

The intersection of Canal and Dauphine St., 1898, showing early electric cars on all five tracks.  The car at the left edge of the picture, on the center track, has an arch roof, identifying it as one of the locally built double truck trailers used on the West End line.  The building in the center of the picture is the original building of Maison Blanche (literally, White House), New Orleans' fine old department store.
