In the course of the strike, five streetcars were torched and destroyed: “Palace” cars 679, 687, and 696, and “Morris” trailer cars 523 and 524.  Some of them were burned during a striker assault on Canal Station.  The upper photo shows car 679 after the strikers finished with it.  The lower picture shows the interior of another car, probably 687. — Collection of Morris Hill (upper); N.
