Picture 11-22.

On the east side of the Industrial Canal, the St. Claude streetcar line left St. Claude Avenue and followed narrower city streets, eventually working its way toward the river and its terminal across the St. Bernard Parish line at the American Sugar Refinery.  Here, we see downbound (outbound) tripper car 868 turning from Chartres into Tricou as it works its way to N. Peters at the Mississippi River levee.  Note the elderly building in the background, with a sign saying “Catholic Center”.  A part of St. Maurice Parish, it still exists today. — Louis Hennick Collection of The Historic New Orleans Collection
