Picture 5.

This stereo view is facing almost due compass north.  The date is Nov. 18, 1860, and the Henry Clay statue is still very new.  We see the intersection of Canal Street with Royal Street, with the Turo Building on the far side of Canal.  Note the nice post and chain fence around the neutral ground, and the omnibuses along the street.  There are as yet no streetcars.  As busy as the street is, this is a Sunday!
