Picture 1-6.

A somewhat damaged picture of New Orleans City RR car 202, another “1894 Brill” rolling on its original maximum traction trucks, signed for the Magazine line.  The small (“pony”) wheels can clearly be seen to be facing the inside, with the large wheels facing toward the outer ends of the car.  This car was part of an order of 50 cars, numbers 166-215, placed with the J. G. Brill Co. in April 1894.  The crew of the car, conductor and motorman, are at the far left and right, with a policeman the next person on the right, wearing an old fashioned tall helmet.  Don't miss the sign advertising sailing at West End, visible at the upper right. — Collection of Earl Hampton
