Picture 96.7.

This picture looks from the Godchaux Building at Chartres and Canal, diagonally across Canal to the Morris Building at the corner of Camp and Canal.  Single truck streetcars are seen on four of the five tracks, with the rightmost (lakebound) track empty in this block.  One car is on the center track, the terminal for the Orleans RR lines Bayou St. John, Broad, and City Park.  The cars have open platforms, which dates the picture to before 1905; in fact, the postcard is postmarked Dec. 9, 1904.
