The New Orleans Transfer, office at No. 840 Common street, between Carondelet and Baronne streets. Its agents pass through all railroad trains and meet all steamers approaching the city. They will check and deliver your baggage promptly on arrival to the hotels and private residences. The traveller pays the transfer agent and exchanges his railroad or steamship checks for Transfer's printed receipt. This receipt is delivered to the driver of the baggage van on receipt of the baggage. Parties stopping at the hotels should leave the Transfer receipts with the clerk of the hotel.
The New Orleans Transfer will also check your baggage on departure from any part of the city (hotels or residences) direct to destination, including all points in the United States, Canada, Cuba, and to borders in Mexico, and points reached by the United Fruit Company's steamship lines, upon presentation of tickets at the office, otherwise depot claim checks are issued. It is therefore prudent to get your baggage checked from residence to avoid the confusion around the depot at train time.
All baggage left at the depot will be subjected to storage charges for each piece at the rate of 25 cents for the first twenty-four hours or fraction thereof, and 10 cents for each succeeding twenty- four hours or fraction thereof.
