Yesterday driving from the airport, we drove along St. Charles and saw three trolley cars all full of people going home from work. I love you all.

NEW ORLEANS STREET CAR
Built in 1923-24, the last "conventional" street cars in regular service in the U.S., operate on the St. Charles line. Railed vehicles first appeared on this line in 1835, and electric trolleys in 1893.
