This 1961 photo gives us a good view of the area around the loop at the foot of Canal Street. We see car 949 traversing the loop. At the far right is the ramp to the upper level of the ferry landing (from which several of the other photos on this page were taken). Many of the buildings in the picture can be found in these other photos, most notably the Custom House, the building with rounded corners and a peak standing above the center of the facade. At the left edge of the picture, Common Street intersects Canal at an acute angle. Note the standard-gauge steam railroad tracks across Canal Street in the foreground.
