Pictures 30, 31, and 31.5.

Car 29 leads Perley Thomas car 961 down Carondelet Street toward Canal Street, about 1968 or 1969.  In the middle photo, 961 is stopped at the traffic light at Common Street, while 29 approaches Canal.  Car 29 is passing over the crossover that had once allowed cars to turn back upbound at this point, but by this time, the upbound track had had no trolley wire for years, and was considered abandoned.  (In just a few more years, it would be removed completely.)  The bottom photo is dated May 18, 1969.  Howard J. Wayt photos
