Picture 16-1.3.

Car 922 is working the Canal line, but it is posing with a Desire route sign.  We are at the cemeteries terminal in 1952, looking toward the river.  The car has just come into the terminal on the left hand track.  Both trolley poles are raised as the crew changes ends for the rerturn trip; the pole at the far end will be pulled down in a few moments.  One of the crew can just be made out behind the center window in the car end.  Car 922 just happens to be the streetcar that appeared in the Vivien Leigh - Marlon Brando movie “A Streetcar Named Desire”.
