Picture 12-11.

The REAL “Streetcar Named Desire”.  This is the actual streetcar that appeared in the movie (see Picture 12-0).  At this point in its life, it was operated on the St. Charles streetcar line, and no longer had a DESIRE selection on its roll sign, so photographer Hampton made one for this picture.  That's Louisiana Tourist Development Commission “motorman” Byron Pulley in the suit near the headlight of car 922 at Carrollton Station. — Photo by Earl Hampton
