NOLA 300: A look back at the iconic New Orleans streetcar, 30 photos

NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -

Streetcars have been an integral part of New Orleans' public transportation system since the first half of the 19th century. 

Early operations consisted of railroad and horse-drawn omnibus lines between the city and suburbs along the Mississippi and Lake Pontchartrain. 

The streetcar system has since evolved, developing into the four streetcar lines we see today: The St. Charles Avenue Line, the Canal Street Line, the Riverfront Line and the Loyola Avenue Line.
