The last regularly scheduled streetcar on the Canal line was 958.  It is seen here getting ready to leave the terminal at the foot of Canal Street for the last time, filled with fan riders, in the early hours of May 31, 1964.  This was the last visit of any streetcar to this terminal.  Normally, this run would have been to the cemeteries and then back to the car barn at Canal Station, but on this night, 958 pulled into the station on its final outbound trip, and yielded its passengers and the rest of its run to 972.
