Pictures 337, 338, and 338.5.

These views of Canal Street look out from the true “foot” of Canal Street.  We are closer to the river than the streetcar loop.  The Liberty Monument can be seen in all three pictures, with the track loop around the Monument, and streetcars beyond it.  To the right from the Monument, below the advertising signs (which are seen from the back), is the ramp to the L&N Railroad depot and the Canal ferry.  The third picture is dated March 2, 1946; the other pictures probably also date from the 1940s or early 1950s.  (For a front view of the signs, and the activity below them, see Picture 303.) — Mike Roberts Studios (upper), Colourpicture (middle)
