Tram to Cabarita

 

The late nineteenth century and early twentieth centuries saw a rapid expansion of tram services to meet the growing need for urban transportation.

In turn the tramlines helped to transform semi rural areas into suburbs.
By the 1920s Sydney had one of the world’s largest tramway networks which carried well over a million passengers each weekday.

The photograph shows an O-class tram on a trial journey to Cabarita prior to the introduction of a regular electric service in February 1912.

Do you have memories of trams in our area?
