Car 947 at Carondelet and Canal Sts. during the Freret trolley coach era (before June 19, 1963). Such a coach is loading behind the streetcar. The rear boarding of the two-man era is in evidence. The popularity of westerns on television in that era could be represented by the car card advertising a repeating six-shooter gun with soft bullets through Royal Crown Cola. My collection. One photo added 06/08/12.

Slide copyright 2015 by Peter Ehrlich and used with permission. Two photos added 01/24/15.

CAR 948:


Car 948 is ostensibly the subject of these two Roy Gabriel slides taken September 1, 1964. In the first one, 948 enters Canal from Carondelet. In the second, the car waits to turn onto St. Charles. The real context of these two slides is to show the recently completed conversion of the Canal streetcar line to buses. Public Service was quick in removing trackage and paving over the neutral ground for the new busway. Here it is three months later, and it is already finished and getting broken in with tire treads and fluid drips. Two of the three buses in these slides were purchased specifically to convert Canal; they would be Flxible 172 and GMC 199. We can also see GMC 29 from the first purchase of New Looks in 1960. Four photos added 04/26/12.

An Earl Hampton, Jr. photo of car 951 on St. Charles Ave in the early 1990s. This was the second trolley to be rehabilitated after car 937; it was already in the shop being rebuilt after an electrical fire and was given the full treatment. One photo added 07/17/12.

Car 953 rounding Lee Circle for uptown in a slide from my collection dated January 1963. Billboard at the rear advertises Texaco's famous 1950s slogan, "Trust Your Car To The Man Who Wears The Star." One photo added 03/22/14.

Car 961 enters the crossover at Carrollton and Claiborne on July 8, 1965. GMC TDH5301 number 117 at right is probably on a Tulane layover next to Palmer Park. The streetcar has NOPSI's lightning bolt (or swash, if you're not me) logo at the center of the side. This is probably a recent addition because cars did not previously carry Public Service logos. One photo added 09/22/11.

Car 965 following 932 from Lee Circle to St. Charles Ave. to uptown on May 21, 1990. The sides of 965 really show aging and wear. It's a good thing the RTA began the renovations of the fleet that year. Collection of H. George Friedman. One photo added 09/16/13.
