Pictures 17-14 and 17-15.

Two lines of 800-series cars signed Tulane, stored in Napoleon Yard.  The line in the upper photo is led by car 855, and is dated January 14, 1951, just a few days after the Tulane line ceased to operate streetcars.  The second photo, which is undated but was probably taken about the same time, features a line led by car 826, which is known to have been scrapped in October 1951.  These are thought to be cars made surplus by the close of Tulane Avenue to streetcars, and now awaiting scrapping.
