Picture 216.

This unusual structure was built across the Canal Street neutral ground, near Maison Blanche, for a Knights Templar convention in 1922.  The dates at the upper left and right are 1918 and 1922, respectively.  The nearest cross street, just beyond the double arch, is Carondelet/Bourbon.  The pennant on the knight's lance is marked “KT”.  The streetcar approaching on the riverbound inner track is “Palace” car 710.  Note the deteriorated condition of the neutral ground paving and trackage. — Collection of James H. Adams, Jr.
