Picture 8-5.

Judging by the automobiles, this picture featuring car 958 was taken some time in the 1940s.  The car has just cleared S. Claiborne Ave. riverbound.  A bit of the Beacon Restaurant on S. Claiborne can be made out to the right of the streetcar.  Napoleon Ave. was, and remains, a wide beautiful street with a broad neutral ground eminently suitable for a streetcar line.  Thanks to Richard Sharp for identifying the location.
