Picture 7-4.

Here is car 930 on May 4, 1947, at the Howard Avenue end of the Dryades Street track, where the inbound (downbound) Jackson car is turning to its left into Howard to go one block over to S. Rampart Street, which it will follow to Canal Street.  The trolley coach wires visible in this picture are actually above the streetcar trolley wires and are not connected to them, so that when the Freret and Jackson lines convert to rubber tires, all that remains to be done is to remove the streetcar wires and the trolley coach wires will be ready to use.  The steeple in the background belongs to St. John the Baptist Catholic Church.
