Picture 6-2.

This is the intersection of Howard Avenue and Carondelet Street, looking upriver along Carondelet, July 21, 1954.  Freret trolley coach 1321, built in 1948 by St. Louis Car Co., is waiting for the red light.  The track under the coach was formerly used by S. Claiborne and Freret streetcars, but is no longer in service.  The curve in the foreground in still used today by St. Charles cars to turn from Howard into Carondelet.  The tracks to our right on Howard date all the way back to the origins of the St. Charles car line as the New Orleans and Carrollton RR., but are no longer in active regular service.
