Pictures 255 and 256.

Canal Street in the late 1940s (above) and early 1950s (below).  The view is out toward the lake, with St. Charles/Royal the first intersection.  Notice the realigned inner tracks, with passenger loading space between inner and outer tracks; the ornamental street lights, and lack of overhead wires (except, of course, for the trolley wires and the span wires to support them); and in the foreground, the cut off remnants of curves that formerly connected Royal Street and the downbound track on St. Charles to the outer Canal Street tracks. Grant L. Robertson (both)
