Here we see car 945 inbound on the Canal line at Dauphine in the spring or summer of 1958. There is a Katz & Besthoff drugstore on our left, on the downtown side of Canal. Note the cobblestone pots with healthy new palm trees in them. Unfortunately, in the winter of 1962, a bad frost killed all the palm trees in the cobblestone pots. At the left, next to the light pole, is a machine or tool box used in the rebuild, perhaps awaiting use in some last minute touch-up, prior to its removal.
