This Dauphine Line transfer is punched for August 21 with a time limit of 6:20 p.m. The name of the line to transfer to is obscured by the punch, but appears to be “S. Claib.” (Claiborne). The penciled date is 1912. This is a problem, as Hennick & Charlton's book states that the S. Claiborne line started on February 22, 1915. Also, the Laurel Line is listed and the Annunciation Line is not. Hennick & Charlton date the beginning of the Laurel Line to August 12, 1913, and the end of the Annunciation Line to December 23, 1917. So a date of 1918-1920 is suggested for this transfer. Dauphine was an important line, which eventually evolved into the St. Claude Line.
