Title:047 - Jackson Street depot, New Orleans, Jackson & Great Northern Rail Road

In 1875 the New Orleans, Jackson & Great Northern Rail Road went into receivership, came under the control of the Illinios Central Railroad, and was renamed the Chicago, St. Louis, and New Orleans Railroad. "Hardee's New Map of New Orleans Including Street Railway Guide, 1878," when describing the street railroad Jackson Railroad Depot Line, states, "The cars of this line start at a station on Magnolia Street near the Passenger Depot of the New, Orleans, St. Louis, and Chicago Railroad (formerly Jackson Railroad) . . .."[p. 19] Hardee's later states the Chicago, Saint Louis, and New Orleans Passenger Depot and Repair Shops "occupy a large tract of ground on the suburbs of the city, in the vicinity of the Passenger Depot building, at the corner of Calliope and Magnolia streets." [p. 25] The inscription verso may be a common error conflating the railroad name with a nearby street name.
