A Streetcar Named Desire

Yes, A Streetcar Named Desire is a play by Tennessee Williams, but the title comes from streetcars running along the “Desire” line in New Orleans’ French Quarter. This restored 1924 streetcar is on loan to Lowell, Massachusetts.

        I haven’t read Glass Menagerie, yet; though I recently finished Cat on a Hot Tin Roof; it was really good!
        Yeah, do read that too! It’ll be good, no doubt!

      I’m glad you like it so much. They still ran these streetcars in New Orleans when I visited several years ago and I got to ride one. Have a great weekend. Cheers!

      Hello Soheir!
      Nice to hear from you.
      In some cases our government restores the old trams but in other situations, the money comes from other sources (contributions, private funds). It is nice to preserve the best things about our past, I think.
      It is almost the weekend…will you do anything?
      Have a great day.
      Cheers =)

    I am on holidays, and way behind with my blog reading.
    I have seen the play many years ago. Guess it is a time to watch or read it again. Your photographs are very nostalgic.

    I held my breath for a sec, thought you were in New Orleans 🙂
    I love the plays by Tennessee Williams… especially the “Glass Menagerie”… “Streetcar named Desire” is a bit depressing for me… but your photos are wonderful!! 🙂
