Some colour photos of the amazing tram system that existed in Brisbane until they were ripped out in 1969!
More info here.
I am not 100% on the source of these all of these images. I suspect the BCC for many of them. The Youtube clip at the end of this post suggest a chap named Richard Jones . They came to me via a friends mother via email. If anyone does know I will add due credit.
[UPDATE 27/04/16] Richard Jones contacted me recently confirming his connection to many of the photos which where taken below. More of his Brisbane photos can be viewed at the Brisbane Tramway Museum. Thank you Richard for sharing your lovely work!
