The first two pictures here show cars 964 and 956 just after they have completed their upbound runs and discharged their last passengers. The cars are stopped on the curve, with the upbound automobile roadway glimpsed behind the car. All five pictures are undated, but the automobile in the upper photo suggests an early 1950s date; the others are probably late 1940s or early 1950s. Car 956 sports an unusual Canal St. destination sign. — Lawrence Boehning (second picture)
The third picture shows car 961, just a bit forward of the location of 964 and 956 in the first two pictures. The track glimpsed across the bottom of the picture is the downbound track. — D. R. Toye, S. J., Kenner Train Shop (Chris Rodriguez) collection, courtesy of Mike Palmieri
The fourth and fifth pictures show cars 960 and 946 on the upbound track, approaching the switch connecting to the downbound track. In the fifth picture, car 964 at our right has already changed ends and pulled forward to the point from which passengers are loaded for the next trip downbound. — Collection of Earl Hampton (fifth picture)
