CAR 816:

In an undated and uncredited 1950s slide, car 816 is in the crossover at S. Carrollton and S. Claiborne Aves. on another trip to Canal St. There is plenty of action to be seen. Car X63 (first digit unknown) is in the riverbound track. A&G Restaurant was located in the space behind the Amoco service station; Burger King replaced the "good food" restaurant in the 1960s. The top rear of a Tulane trolley coach is at S. Claiborne ready to return to the CBD. Two GMC 5105 buses are in the South Claiborne terminal. Express lamps can be seen on the coaches, so this dates from 1955, when the limited stop Carrollton via Poydras entered service. And on the right, the original location of the K&B Drug Store at Claiborne and Carrollton was on the downtown riverside corner. In the 1960s, it moved to the uptown lakeside corner diagonally across the intersection. Two photos from a slide in my collection added 01/24/15.

The Strauch family chartered car 905 for an August 4, 2005 streetcar party honoring the 80th birthday of the eldest member, my father's uncle Clarence. The event was a surprise to him; why were family members meeting him at the car barn? We rode from Carrollton Station to Canal Street and back. Clarence seems to be in his element; he's quite pleased with the happenings. Here too is a photo, from the party following the charter, of three of the four senior Strauch siblings: Bill Sr., Alice, and Clarence (not pictured is Walter). A charter was appropriate because they have a history of using the NORy&L/NOPSI streetcar system in their younger days. In fact, Walter is the one who nicknamed me "Streetcar Mike" in 1982 because of my knowledge.


Two shots of the interior from the rear of the car, once at Carrollton Station before departure and once en route on the journey.
