Picture 333.
Car 908 traverses the loop at the foot of Canal Street in the later afternoon of Friday, Jan. 31, 1964.  The weather is typical of New Orleans: there has been a recent shower.  The car is showing a “Car House” destination in the window nearest the photographer, so the crew is looking forward to the end of their work day.  Note the extreme angle of the trailing trolley pole as the car rounds the tight curve.  Several other cars can be glimpsed at the right on the outbound tracks.  The two tracks in the foreground are standard gauge railroad tracks. — Bill Armstrong
