Picture 12-12.

After the Desire and Gentilly streetcar lines were closed in 1948, the track and overhead wire removed, and the streets patched, NOPSI's fleet of White buses served the line in almost the exact same route.  Here we see two of those buses on Royal Street heading toward Canal Street, 1710 on the Desire line at St. Peter Street, and a sister a block or so back on Gentilly, around 1948-1950.  Notice hanging over the street the bracket arms from which the trolley wire so recently had hung.
