Pictures 9-8, 9-9, and 9-10.

These unusual photos show cars 952, run no. 5, 948, run no. 6, and 961, run no. 7, heading the wrong way on the track, on S. Claiborne near Versailles Blvd., February 12, 1950.  The man in full uniform in front of car 948, and in the window of 961, appears to be a supervisor giving instructions to the motormen of the cars.  The cars may be extra runs assigned for an expected crowd.  Whatever the reason, the cars are being turned back, and are about to switch across the neutral ground to the opposite track.  There were several crossovers along the line for just this purpose.
