Picture 183.

The downtown side of Canal looking out toward St. Charles/Royal, postmarked 1911.  On the right, a single truck car is starting to cross Canal from Royal upbound, on the Clio or Carondelet line.  Dash panels on the cars request passengers to “Pay Conductor on Entering.”  The patriotic decorations on the buildings are not for Mardi Gras, but for a convention.  (Mardi Gras decorations would be different.)  Most of the cars are single truck, but the first car on the inner riverbound track is a “Palace” car. — Lipsher Specialty
