Pictures 15-18 and 15-19.

The car storage yard at Canal Station, showing damage to many of the stored streetcars.  The upper picture features “Palace” cars 677 signed for Canal Belt and 631 signed for Esplanade Belt, plus at the right, an unidentified single truck car, partial number 62.  The second picture shows single truck “Prytania” car 360 signed for St. Bernard, and FB&D car 172 signed for Broad, with two “Palace” cars beyond them.  Note the broken windows in every car, and the pulled-down sections of the “protecting” fence.  The pile of debris at the right in the lower picture may, or may not, be a result of the strike. — Collection of Earl Hampton
