Fifty years ago today Sydney lost its last tram. The trams were replaced by a combination of motor buses and trolley buses. Julie has posted some nice commemorative photos here.
Below is one of my favourite Sydney tram photos. I am unsure where it came from or of copyright. It is a location familiar to many. It certainly should be to you if you have ever visited Kings Cross.
To your right is William Street, leading to the city and to your left is Bayswater Road leading to the eastern suburbs and of course the intersecting street is Darlinghurst Road. If you look terribly hard, you may see tram tracks in Darlinghurst Road, which was only a short siding. The trams in the photos should have travelled from Watsons Bay, but it is possible that they are extra trams which didn't travel the whole route and were provided to offer a good service to Kings Cross and beyond.
