NOPSI 1017
Title:  NOPSI 1017
Description:  Five months before the U.S. entered WWII, St. Claude Line car 1017 was stopped on North Rampart Street at Canal Street in New Orleans, waiting to "change ends" and head back downriver to St. Bernard Parish. The Rubenstein's store on the right was in the Saenger Theater building, across Canal Street from the Loew's. New Orleans Public Service Inc. 1000-1019 were built in 1928, and were the last cars purchased by NOPSI. Unlike the earlier cars 800-972, these had smaller wheels (26 vs. 33-inch) and four 35 HP motors instead of two 65 HP. These cars spent most of their lives on the St. Claude Line, which ended at the American Sugar refinery in Chalmette, and were all scrapped in 1949 after being replaced by buses. (approximate day)
