Pictures 293 and 293.1.

Cemeteries car 917 is at the end of the Cemeteries line on Julia St.  The top picture shows the car ready to begin its next inbound run to the foot of Canal Street.  The motorman is looking back over his right shoulder to check for an oncoming West End car before taking the crossover in front of him to enter the main inbound track.  In the second picture, the car has just begun its inbound run, and is turning from Julia St. into City Park Ave. for the short trip back to Canal Street.  Compare the picture of car 933 following.  The upper picture was taken in 1949, and the lower was possibly taken at the same time.  The entrance to Metairie Cemetery can be seen at the left edge of the lower picture.
