Picture 16-5.

Taken literally, the signs on car 913 mean Canal Line, destination Broadway.  Unfortunately for reality, Canal Street and Broadway Ave. do not come anywhere close to intersecting.  This view, taken in Canal Station yard, was clearly posed.  There never was a Broadway streetcar line in New Orleans, although before the creation of the pioneering Broadway trolley coach line, streetcars of several different routes operated on parts of Broadway Ave, from north of S. Claiborne Ave. to Magazine St. near the Mississippi River.  That is probably the reason for a Broadway selection on car 913's roll sign.
