Picture 241.

A true nighttime picture of Canal Street, showing several streetcars.  The two on the outer track, to our right in the picture, are car 440 on the St. Charles Belt line, closer to us, and car 816, in front of 440.  To our left, on the inner track, we see car 612 (visible between 440 and 816), and behind 612, an unidentified 800 or 900 series car.  The presence of a 600 series car dates the picture to the early 1930s, as the last of the 600-700 series “Palace” cars was scrapped in 1935.
