Picture 116.

This view of Canal Street looks across toward the downtown side, probably around 1904.  Amazingly enough, the nearest car appears to be the same Brill no. 115 as in the previous pictures, a little later in its life.  Vestibule windows were added to all New Orleans streetcars around 1904, when the Louisiana legislature mandated closed vestibules.  That appears to be the only major difference between this view of car 115 and the previous ones.  It is still running on its Brill Maximum Traction trucks.  It is operating riverbound on the inside track.  Unfortunately, the route sign on the dash cannot be read.
