Freret streetcars, and later trolley coaches, operated between Howard Ave. and Canal St. along Carondelet and St. Charles Streets, sharing the route with St. Charles streetcars.  On Canal Street, the streetcars used the neutral ground, while the trolley coaches used the automotive roadway.  This September 1959 view of Freret coach 1282 and St. Charles car 971 looks out Canal from St. Charles.  A Canal streetcar can be seen at the right, waiting for the traffic light at Carondelet.  Coach 1282, like 1321 in the previous photo, was a 1948 product of St. Louis Car Co.
