Picture 218.

“Palace” car 644 on the St. Claude line begins the turn from N. Rampart Street to Canal some time in the late 1920s.  At this time, the line operated on the inner Canal Street tracks to the loop at the foot of Canal.  Later, it changed to use of a loop through the Vieux Carré, and still later to a stub-end terminal at this point on N. Rampart.  Note the Saenger Theater on the left; we will see it in many more pictures of this area.
