Picture 21C-1.6.

Another form of NO&C transfer.  These were printed in a strip, or perhaps in a roll, from which the conductor could tear off one or more, as needed.  It is designed for transfer between St. Charles cars (green) and either Napoleon (yellow) or Jackson (red) cars, in either direction.  Napoleon and Jackson cars operated from the river to St. Charles Ave., then went down-river to Canal Street on the same route as the St. Charles cars.  So the transfer enabled a passenger to go from the river out to St. Charles Ave., then switch to another car going up-river, or to make the reverse trip, starting from Carrollton and ending at the river on Napoleon or Jackson.  (This is the same function as the transfer in the previous picture.  It is not known which form is the older.)
