Pictures 11-9, 11-9.5, 11-10, 11-11, 11-12, and 11-13.

Perley Thomas cars 1000, 1001, 1003, and 1006, and St. Louis cars 1010 and 1016, nearing the St. Claude terminal on N. Rampart at Canal.  The cars have just crossed Iberville St., and are within a block of pulling up to the stub end at Canal St. to change ends for their next downbound runs.  The photographers are standing on the lake side of Rampart, looking in toward the river.  Note the distinctive building in the left background of each picture, the New Orleans Athletic Club.  The picture of car 1001 (top picture) is dated October 3, 1943.  The second picture is of car 1000, taken in 1947.  There are four men in NOPSI uniform; perhaps one crew is relieving another.  The third picture, showing car 1010, is dated June 10, 1947.  In the picture of car 1003 (fourth picture), dated only about a month later than the third (July 18, 1947), we see construction beyond the car; the building in the right background of the first three pictures has been demolished, and a new building is being put up on the site.  The fifth picture, featuring car 1016, is dated November 23, 1947, and shows partially opened front doors as the passengers prepare to alight.  The sixth photo shows car 1006, and was taken in January 1948.  The construction project is obviously still ongoing.
