Pictures 17 through 19.

After the successful test run, car 450 was decorated with balloons and brought out to show off.  The top picture shows it turning from Carondelet to Canal, and the second shows it entering Lee Circle from St. Charles Street.  In the third picture, we see the 450 later in the day on St. Charles Ave., heading back to Carrollton Station.  Note the big signs on the sides of the car, which read, “Riverfront Streetcar Celebration / Opens August 14, 1988”. — Photos by Earl Hampton
