Photo dated to 1918; people wearing masks and crowd at the street corner suggests Mardi Gras parade; shadows tell me this old photo is afternoon. In 1918 Mardi Gras fell on February 12th but parades can run earlier. However, in November of 1917, Mardi Gras was shut down until 1920 (WWI). So, it's either up to 1917 or 1920 and after. Here's a modern view of 100 North Rampart Street, w/o the T; still has the streetcar.
100 North Rampart
