Picture 253.5.

Cemeteries car 924 at the right is heading for the river, while Tulane car 812 is lakebound, both on the inner tracks.  Beyond car 812, we can see a trolley coach on the Jackson line.  The intersection in the foreground is Burgundy Street to the left, and University to the right.  The shoppers are wearing or carrying light coats, and there are Christmas decorations on the light poles.  The date has to be between 1947, when the Jackson trolley coach line was started, and 1949, the last year for the use of the Cemeteries name for the Canal streetcars.
