Vintage Photograph of the Real New Orleans Streetcar Named Desire

Vintage Photograph of the Real New Orleans Streetcar Named Desire

Genuine New Orleans history — the real Street Named Desire, photographed in the 1980s

Made famous by the Tennessee Williams play and the Marlon Brando movie, this is a toned black and white photograph of the actual New Orleans No. 22 streetcar named “Desire.” After retirement, the streetcar was displayed in a park in New Orleans, but has long since been relegated to a warehouse.

 Prints for sale

 

Toned black and white photograph of the original Streetcar Named Desire in New Orleans. Scanned from the original film negative, exposed in 1988 by Keith Dotson.

8 x 12.5 inch fine art print on professional quality luster-surface Kodak photo paper, with a white margin around the image. Mounted on single ply acid-free white mat board. Ships in 3 to 5 business days, well packaged in a protective box.

Blurring and grain are artifacts from the original film, which I think makes the print more interesting.

Also available on Etsy
