Picture 253.

Canal Street looking out from the corner of University/Burgundy, December 1940.  The Woolworth store is at the near corner of N. Rampart St.  There is a small crowd of people at the left waiting for the traffic light to cross from the Canal Street neutral ground to the uptown side of the street.  Just to the right from them, we can see the track switch which used to carry streetcars into University; but there is no longer a trolley wire leading into that curve, so the University/Dryades track has been abandoned.  The one streetcar in sight is outbound on the inner Canal Street track.
