Pictures 125.5 and 125.6.

Here is a view down the middle of Canal Street, looking lakeward from about St. Charles and Royal Streets.  (The second picture is a closeup taken from the first.)  The nearest streetcar is “Palace” car 612, so the photo must date at least from 1918, when the “Palace” cars were renumbered into the 600s and 700s; it probably dates from the early to mid 1920s.  A few other streetcars can be glimpsed in the background.  Notice the deteriorated condition of the pavement and the track.
