Picture 225.3.

This view of Canal Street came from a 1930 leaflet advertising New Orleans.  The caption recalled the “newer and finer Canal Street” which resulted from the $3,500,000 renovation program.  In the lower front of the picture, we are looking toward the lake at the intersection of Royal and St. Charles Streets with Canal; Maison Blanche is in the right background.  A Freret or S. Claiborne car is beginning its turn from the outer riverbound track into St. Charles Street.  The car next to it is probably a Tulane, Cemeteries, or West End car on the inner riverbound track.  Additional streetcars can be seen further out on Canal.  The four-track crossover between St. Charles/Royal and Carondelet/Bourbon is clearly visible. — New Orleans Association of Commerce
