"There Was a Streetcar Called Desire."

"View of Desire Street streetcar coming up Royal Street towards Canal Street. Shows automobiles, ironwork balconies, lamp posts, and buildings along Royal Street. The Desire streetcar route--so called because its terminus was on Desire Street in the Ninth Ward of New Orleans--served the shopping areas along Royal and Canal streets and the nightclubs on Bourbon Street. The route ceased operation in 1948, the same year A Streetcar Named Desire had its premiere on Broadway."
