Picture 254.

This view looks inward, past an 800-series streetcar, probably on the Cemeteries line.  The car is taking on passengers at its right rear door at the Dauphine/Baronne intersection.  In the right foreground, we see the shiny rails of the outer riverbound track.  This track was used at this time by the St. Charles Belt line cars, which turned right into Baronne St. to travel up to Howard Ave.  We see a knot of passengers awaiting the next car.  It is a sunny but cold day in December 1940.
