Pictures 12-5.5, 12-5.6, and 12-5.7.

The top picture features cars 898 and 884, somewhere on the Desire line, probably at or near the terminal at France and Tonti Streets.  There are no passengers aboard 898, but several are visible aboard trailing car 884.  The second picture shows car 847 at the same location, some time in 1948, just a few months before the demise of the line.  There is at least one person on the car, but is that the motorman taking his break?  The third photo is of car 878, apparently also at the same location, although the street sign on the pole cannot quite be read.  Note the unpaved streets.
