A Canal car has just passed this car stop inbound, about a block away from Canal Station, on Sunday, August 25, 1963. Note the older type of white-painted wooden Car Stop sign, which is now extinct in New Orleans. The only thing about this one is that some joker has repainted it with mirror-image lettering, whether by accidentally holding the stencil backwards or deliberately as a prank. (The picture has not been reversed. The yellow School Zone sign can be read, and reversing it would make the automobiles run on the left side of the street.) The towers at the left are Warren Easton High School. Compare the trees in this picture to the young ones in Picture 262.
