Pictures 340 and 340.5.

Two similar views of Canal car 941.  In the upper picture, the car waits for the red light inbound at Camp St. one evening in July 1961.  We have a clear view of the conductor waiting for the next passenger to board.  In the lower picture, inbound at Baronne St. during the day in March 1964, we see a crowd on the car.  There are so many people on the platform that we almost can't see the conductor; he's barely visible at the left edge of the end window, facing the open rear door.  It's apparently a warm spring day, with almost all the car windows open.  (March is spring in Louisiana, even though it's still cold in the northern USA.)  The dash of the car has been repainted with the silver stripe omitted.
