Description:
The Last Day Transfer Ticket of the Actual Streetcar Named Desire, Signed by Tennessee Williams
[Tennessee Williams]. New Orleans Streetcar Transfer Ticket for the Streetcar "Desire". [New Orleans]: Sun., May 30, 1948. The complete ticket, with all transfers (Direct, two Intermediate, and Final). Printed in black and red on light brown paper. Approximately 10.25 x 2 inches. Matted, framed and glazed. Signed by Tennessee Williams on the lower right corner of the matte, "Best/Tennessee/1974". In another hand, on the same matte, is written in the same ink: "Desire Streetcar/Last Day Transfer". Ticket a bit toned (the red printing is a bit faint), minor wear to frame. Overall, a near fine example of a unique item which should be much prized by any Tennessee Williams collector. Sunday, May 30, 1948 was the final day that the "Desire" streetcar ran on its route. It was replaced by a bus on the next day.
