This snapshot was taken on a wintry day around 1920 from the corner of Carondelet and Canal Streets. In the center of the picture, an arch roof car approaches on the outer riverbound track, probably one of the 400s operating on the St. Charles Belt line. To our right from this car are a deck roof “Palace” car on the inner lakebound track, and another arch roof car, a 400 or 800-900 series car, possibly on the Tulane Belt line, on the outer lakebound track. In the right front corner of the picture, we have a good view of the double right-hand rail on the dual-gauge outer track.
