Napoleon was one of the last four streetcar lines in New Orleans. Judging by the automobiles, this picture featuring car 958 was taken some time in the 1940s. The car has just cleared S. Claiborne Ave. riverbound. A bit of the Beacon Restaurant on S. Claiborne can be made out to the right of the streetcar. Napoleon Ave. was, and remains, a wide beautiful street with a broad neutral ground eminently suitable for a streetcar line. Thanks to Richard Sharp for identifying the location.
