Picture 93.

An unusually quiet moment on Canal Street around 1900, looking out toward the Carondelet/Bourbon intersection.  The lone streetcar (which is, unfortunately, heavily retouched in this picture) is displaying a Jackson route sign in the front clerestory window.  It is on the outer riverbound track, heading for the loop terminus at the foot of Canal Street.  Note the crossover between the inner tracks and the lack of a center track at this point.  There is a little booth, perhaps a starter's shelter or a ticket booth, to the right at Bourbon Street.  It can be seen in other pictures also: for example, Pictures 119 and 123.
