Pictures 2-4, 2-4.5, 2-5, 2-6, and 2-7.

The outer end of the West End line, probably between 1948 and 1950.  These pictures show the West End terminal near Lake Ponchartrain late in the life of this line.  The top picture features car 933, and shows off the little shelter erected at this spot.  The second photo shows car 927 from the opposite side, on January 14, 1950, the last day of streetcar operation on the line.  Then we see the sun-dappled sides of cars 900, 926, and 936. Collection of Earl Hampton (first picture) and of the author (last four pictures)
