Picture 328.

Car 933 has just completed its circuit of the loop and switched into the inner lakebound track in this 1960 picture.  We can see the top of the carmen's shelter to the left of the streetcar.  The bushes flank the steps leading down to the entry.  The sparsity of traffic and the shadows suggest that this was taken on a weekend, probably on a Sunday afternoon.  Note the advertisement for “Dr. Tichenor's Antiseptic,” a prominent local brand whose radio ads always featured a Cajun-accented voice. — Railway Negative Exchange
