Picture 94.

This view looks toward the river, with the University Place intersection in the right foreground.  The downtown side of Canal Street is seen on the left and in the distance.  The distinctive tower at the left is the old Maison Blanche department store building; this dates the picture to the first few years of the 1900s.  The streetcar at the left edge of the picture is a single truck Ford Bacon & Davis (FB&D) car, identifiable by its very wide clerestory roof and rectangular windows.  The mule-drawn wagon, the very early automobile, and the bystanders looking at the photographer complete the picture.
