Picture 151.

A Clio or Carondelet car on Royal Street heading uptown toward Canal Street.  The children at the right are giving the photographer a nice clear view of the street, and in return are getting a good look at the mysterious things he is doing to take the picture.  The absence of vehicles other than the streetcar, and the small number of pedestrians, are striking to anyone familiar with Royal Street today.  Notice the lacy ironwork on the balconies of several buildings, typical of the Vieux Carré.
