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.

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