Picture 110.

Riverfront car 462 has paused at the Canal Street station stop on its way downriver to the French Market terminal.  It is loading passengers from its left front door.  Many, but not all, of the station stops along the line are located between the tracks, and so require use of the left-hand doors.  The operator has control of all four doors from the console.  Note the two signs on the station.  There is the regular one, similar to that on all Riverfront station stops, with the stop number and name (“6 Canal St.”), mounted on the station building.  And there is another sign, mounted on the nearest overhead support pole, saying “Canal Station”.  (But the name “Canal Station” historically belongs to the carbarn and bus garage facility on Canal between White and Gayoso Streets.) — Photo by the author
