Picture 221.5.

Construction in progress, January 11, 1930.  The photographer is looking toward the river from about Peters/Tchoupitoulas.  The left-turn curve for streetcars to enter Tchoupitoulas Street is noticeable at the left.  One of the crossover tracks is prominent next to the turn.  We have a good view of the supports for the rails.  In the center of the photo, we can see two linemen on ladders which presumably are leaning on the trolley wire (which almost certainly is not energized).  The walkway to the ferry is seen in the left rear of the photo.  The new ornamental street lights are in place along the edges of the neutral ground. “Canal Street” folder, Louisiana Image collection, Louisiana Research Collection, Tulane University
