Pictures 16-10 and 16-11.

On April 8, 1951, car 878 was parked on the third track on Canal Street, in front of the Canal Station car barn.  Perhaps it was assigned to a charter, and the passengers had not yet boarded.  Some photographers took the opportunity to roll various selections on the route signs.  In the upper photo, the car is signed Louisiana, with a destination of Special, as Canal cars 906 and 913 pass in service.  In the lower picture, a Tchoupitoulas route sign is displayed.
