Trams are an iconic part of Melbourne, just as they used to be in Sydney. But you may not know they once played an important role in Brisbane’s public transport system.
At a time when cars were less popular and milk still arrived in bottles at your front door, the Brisbane CBD and main roads to outlying suburbs lay under a web of tram cables.
The network took children to school and their parents to work.
It connected Chermside in the north to Moorooka in the south, and travelled west to Ashgrove, and east to Camp Hill.
