Picture 11.5-9.

Most of the streetcars that ran on the Gentilly line were the 800 series.  Occasionally, a low-numbered 900 might appear on the route, as here.  This is the point at which the line turned from Almonaster Street into Franklin, at a triple intersection with N. Roman Street.  Car 900 is outbound, some time in the range 1945 to 1948.  (Later, the portion of Almonaster from this point in to the river was renamed Franklin.)
