This wonderfully evocative photo by Richard Jones was taken in 1968, a year before Brisbane's tram system was closed down. The location is the Ashgrove Terminus at the corner of Waterworks Road and Coopers Camp Road. Where tram tracks were set in concrete, they were often just covered over with bitumen and occasionally make an appearance, especially when roadworks are underway.
I have done my best with Street View to show you the modern scene at the
same location. What a pleasant trip it must have been by tram into town, and then transfer to a ferry at the Bulimba Terminal to travel up or down the Brisbane River to your ultimate destination.
PS, I noted on the Translink website that public transport fares in Brisbane have changed. Not increased, just changed. How many fares went down, I wonder.
