Picture 227.

Another view of Canal Street looking in toward the river from Basin Street/Elk Place.  We can see past the Saenger and Loew's theaters to Rampart Street.  Maison Blanche is still the tallest building in the view, with the Hotel Monteleone beyond it, inside the Vieux Carré (which is to our left, from Rampart in toward the river).  A bus can be seen riverbound on Canal at Rampart.  All the streetcars in sight are from the arch roofed classes, so this view is probably later rather than earlier in the 1929-1934 period.
