Pictures 46 and 47.

These two pictures of car 29 were taken in 1971 by Earl Hampton as he and Louis Hennick (coauthor of The Streetcars of New Orleans) “chased” car 29 in Hennick's yellow VW, visible behind car 29 in the second picture.  The top picture features car 29 on Carrollton Ave. near Claiborne Ave. as it awaits its turn on the stub track to reverse and head back down the St. Charles streetcar line.  We see a St. Charles streetcar, rebuilt with round-corner windows in the doors, pulled up behind car 29.  The second picture shows car 29 on Jeannette St. outside Carrollton Station.  Car 29 still sports “work car” dashboard striping. — Photos by Earl Hampton
