Yesteryear In Newcastle: 1940 Tram

Corner of Hunter and Burwood Streets Newcastle, NSW, 1940

The line went straight across Hunter Street. Here seen is a train standing in Burwood Street waiting for a tram to pass up Hunter Street in 1940. The same route had been used for over 100 years. Only this load of coal came from the Glebe Pit.

Same site in 1897
