The St. Charles Streetcar is the oldest
continuously operating street railroad in the world, with service
along the inner portion of the route dating back to 1835. A
that commemorates the history of the line tells that it was powered in earlier eras by mule, horse, and steam engine,
all prior its electrification in 1893.
It is one of the very few transportation routes on the National Register
of Historic Places.
This photo is from along St. Charles Ave. near Third St., in the
Garden District. Notwithstanding the shining light, the
car is heading outbound, away from the camera and toward its terminal
at S. Claiborne Ave.
