Pictures 15-13 and 15-14.

After getting a federal injunction against interference with its operations, NOPSI on July 15 again tried to resume service.  These pictures show the most peaceful part of the day!  In the upper picture, we see federal marshals and local police forming a convoy around a streetcar as it tried to proceed down the Canal Street outer track.  The lower photo shows the same part of Canal Street with NO streetcars!  Instead, the automobile lanes are completely clogged with traffic.
